I forgot to take notes when removing the seats...

Anyone know if the shorter bolts go fore or aft for the passenger seat?

On the driver's side, I did note that the longer of the two allen bolts goes outboard rear, with the two hex head bolts in the front.

Thanks!

Think I just answered my question... rear holes are quite a bit more shallow than front holes, and measurement shows the shorter bolts won't bottom in the rear holes.

I just remembered that the silver ones go up front, black in the back.

If the silver ones are shorter, those should go in the back.

The back holes are pretty shallow, whereas the front ones are quite deep. If it works, it works, but in my case it looked like the longer (black) bolts would bottom out if used in the back. Almost wondered if this was the source of some of the seat creaking issues that had been brought up...

The hex screw goes in the rear, as the head is smaller and can fit into the seat rail. The 13mm goes in the front. Both are the same length (on my car).

Edit: sorry, this is for the driver's seat, silver is definitely in the rear on the passenger seat.

I've actually lost my front bolts! Anyone know their size?
