    I would say unbolt the swivel base from the sub frame.

    Usually only 4 screws.

    The other way involves a gas axe or a 7 inch grinder!:BigGrin:

    On ours we only have to remove the (passenger) seat, not the base - 4 bolts using an Allen Key.

    slide seat fully forward.

    undo two bolts, one inside each seat runner at the very back..

    slide seat fully rearwards.
    undo two bolts, one on each seat runner on the front face of the seat box.

    rear bolts are usually a torx head, front may be hexagon or torx head.

    lift off seat....its heavy.

    1/2 a lb of cemtex would get the seat off the battery quite effectively and quickly:Rofl1:
