did you ever remove it before? was it cross threaded in? If the socket is craftsman or snapon you could return it.

I think i removed all my interior bolts at least once.. i never had that issue.

I took my back seats out too, but the bolts were torqued pretty good, but not impossible to remove (obviously).

Are they rusted or something?

Try using some WD40 on the bolt and then put your back into it.

Not really, you need to remove the seat backs.

Any grown man should be able to remove those bolts... Is it a matter of leverage? Try using a longer armed extension to remove the bolt to give you more leverage.

its not leverage........its just that the bolts won't turn.....

they're so tight even the sprocket turned once...but the bolt didn't......and its rounding out the top of the bolt....

that or get some "bust-a-nut". Yes, there is such a product in a can, and it's good for breaking bolts, nuts, screws, ect. Once you apply it, you have to let it sit for about 8 hours before you can pop it off. I've used this stuff on manifolds before. it works great.

my guess is that your not finding all the bolts, or your turning them the wrong way
