Seat Removal after Dead Battery 3 Years, 3 Months ago  
I have always had a little trouble with my seat removal. My 02 has 104,000 miles on it and the linkage maybe less than perfect from the key. I have a mustang solo and pillion setup. Apparently the back end of the riders seat was not in its slot and that may be adding to my issues, but I cannot get the front to release. I have to get in there to jump or replace my battery.

Is there a backdoor way to get the front "claws" of the riders seat clamp to release? I am wonder if it has to do with the back end being loose and putting to much upward pressure on the claws. I have kneeled on the seat while turning the key but no luck.

Any ideas?

On the rear of the seat, unscrew the bolt and then the release may work easier...

On my Mustang solo I have to sit on it to get it to release very seldom will it release without me sitting on it.

I ended up making a quick-release from my cable coming from the ignition key. I just cut the cable and brazed a knob on the cable which sticks out barely from under the seat. It works great!
