Hi everyone Im new to the forum and new to my 2004 GMC Envoy. The seats are cloth and all torn up. I bought some used leather seats off a friend. I am really at the end of this search. I googled how to remove seats. Nothing on youtube either. It would show car seats or seat covers. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Maybe someone put up a sticky somewhere? I got as far as 4 bolts and need a long socket wrench but I need a little more to go on. Maybe Im in over my head and need to find someone to do it. Any help would be appreciated!

its a piece of cake man... i take mine out every time i go to the track... if its anything like the TB's, its literally like 8-10 nuts, and the seats just come right out...

the bottom portions of the seats that fold forward should have 2 nuts on them.. take those off (take off your BCM cover as well for clearence, unless you dont mind nicking it up a bit), and then just pull the seat up.. piece of cake..

on second thought.. let me go on my photobucket and dig up pix for you... and show you where all the bolts are...

be right back...

edit.. here are the pix.. i just took pix off where the nuts are.. but you can see that once you take them off, the seats will just pull up... for thhe back portion, when you fold the seat down, you will have to lift the flap up, and you will see the extra nuts back there.. hope this helps..

the front ones are held by 4 nuts each. they are under plastic covers. gently pry the covers off.

Great thanks for the pics. So basically all the long white screws that need an extended socket wrench?

pretty much thats it... i think 8-10 in total... when you take the backs off, the seatbelts will move with them, so just remember which way they go back on.. (the base plates when you put the nuts back on)

and someone must of had my seats out before i bought my SS Jimmy... they never had covers on them, and only the 2 nuts, not 4... learn somethin new everyday when you buy a used vehicle :rotfl:

I got the cloth seats off finally. They told me these leather ones would fit but obviously not. The front leather seats look like they line up. I believe these back seat were off an extended Envoy or Trailblazer which is probably the issue..

The front seats are interchangeable between the short wheelbase, 5 passenger models and the long wheelbase, EXT, 7 passenger models.
The second row of seats ( back seats in a short wheelbase and middle row of seats in an EXT) are not. They are not even close. It is not cosr effective to rework the EXT seat frames, modify the foam, and get new leather covers. Sorry to deliver the bad news.

Sometimes just rear Trailblazer seats come up for sale on e-bay but shipping is expensive. You could ask an auto upholstery shop to make you a matching rear set of vinyl covers for your existing rear seats but that will cost you several hundred dollars. Your best bet is local salvage yards.

I found out the hard way. I had to go back (1 hour drive each way) and they gave me a new set. It looks great though. I will post some pics soon!
