mine says 3416 lbs, but the reviews from Ford and edmunds.com says 2458 lbs. I think the door sticker takes into account for 850 lbs of passengers and 80 lbs of luggage. which still doesn´t bring out that 1000 lbs. But thats what they say.

siragan fold down the seats and pull back the back carpet. youl see the bracket that hold down the upper part.
the bottom part has just two little clips under the front of the seat, that you can use a screwdriver to unclip them, but i couldnt get mine to unclip, so i just pulled it up from the back and busted the clips

ive thought about taking the ac out but foggy windows are common this time of year. ive seen rally cars use defrosters like on the back hatch but i wonder will it pass inspetion like that
