seat removal

Hi i'm trying to remove a seat from a 1996 skidoo formula ss 670. I tried to remove the two bolts in the back but once they were loose they just spun. Any ideas

Look under neath the sled above the track see if you can see the bolts. If so you going to have to try and and get a vise grips on them or a flat head screw driver to get the bolt to stop turning so you can get the nutt off all the way. Most time you just have to push up on the bolt tight to the tunnel so it doesnt spin depending if it damage or not.

It looks like the T bolt is sitting just inside of the seat on top of the frame and just goes through the hole to where you can see it underneath the sled above the track. So are you saying that there is a metal piece inside of the seat, that if you push up on the T bolt that it will hold it in place so you can get the nut off?

Is there a storage compartment on the seat? Usually that is where the bolt heads are hid

A lort of the time, those bolts are spot welded to a plate inside the seat and the welds break and they just spin.
