You can get the tapered bolts at Chrome World. I think that is where I purchased mine.nludvigson said:I have had mine off MANY times...including to install the Utopia. Here is a MAJOR hint: Yes, buy the tapered bolts....deffinately, but also take a drill bit much larger than the bolt holes and taper the entry points. The metal is pretty soft and it doesn't take much. This REALLY helps in getting the tapered bolts in the FIRST time---every time and you will NEVER have to worry about cross threading. ALWAYS start the bolts with your fingers until you are SURE that you are in the threads.
The seat is not that hard to get OFF. It's getting it back ON that is a little difficult. I SPY's advice is the best trick I have learned for doing this. It only takes a few seconds to remove or install the backrest and it makes the whole re-install of the seat easier. Take out the 2 screws and the backrest just lifts off.I SPY said:When removing and installing the seat, it is best done so with the passenger back rest removed. Just open the trunk and take out those two little screws and washers.
