Hello,
i need to remove (momentarily) the rear seat cushion (the horizontal part of the seat).
It is locked in place, but have not found any lever to push aside to unlock the seat cushion.
Have read how to remove the seat cushion of the Ford Fiesta, but the rear cushion of the Mazda 2 seems to be locked differently.
Anyone can help?
Thanks

Do you mean to just put them down?

There is a button up on the top of the seat by the headrest to press and unlock the seat to push the seat-back down.

If you mean to physically remove them from the car, I would assume they are bolted down. I haven't had reason to remove them in the 2, but my corolla seats were bolted in place at the hinge point.

I needed to remove the rear seat cushion (the horizontal part of the seat) to load a drum kit.
To remove it there are two hinges on the bottom of the cushion towards the anterior third (left and right) that need to be unlocked by moving them slightly to the left/right. Then there is a hook in the middle back part of the cusion that needs to be freed up.
At this point the cushion comes away.

I never had a chance to inspect the Mazda2 rear seat to see how it's bolted in but from my experience with other cars, removing the rear seat back rest you would usually have to lift up the bottom part of the seat (which most of the times, hooks in and removal is just a matter of pulling on it) and once you do that.... you should see the anchor points for the back rest with the bolts that hold it down.

I wish i had a Mazda2 repair manual or Mazda2 workshop manual of some sort!

Any update on this? I'm interested in removing the back seat too.
I have a feeling I'll be using this car as more of a courier like the Fiesta Van in the UK.

I was able to remove the back seat by taking out a half dozen bolts at the hinges and the seat belt anchor in the middle. It worked great as a mini-mini van to help a friend move out of her apartment to a new one across town.

Seems like ah heckuva lot of effort to move those seats down. Surely there's got to be some lever or button of some sort to make it easier to move the seat around unless it's not meant to do so…
