    What is the secret of removing the rear seat cushion from this car? Push back then pull up? Pull forward the pull up? Just pull up? I have tried everthing I can think of but no success. Help please.

    1998 Escort rear seat cushion removal. How to do it? Answer

    Under rear seat about a foot or so from each end are 2 white buttons. Just lift up edge of seat to see them. Push buttons, lift seat.

    My son has a 99 sport and was asking me how they come up and I described the 'button' mechanism but his did not have that it just has plastic inserts that hold a wire loop on the seat and you just pull straight up

    they changed it in 99. the older ones had the buttons you had to push, the newer ones just snap into place and back out again.
