there are 2 10mm nuts under seat in tunnel, actually the nuts are smaller but you need a 10 mm wrench LOL. It is best to soak with penatrating oil before trying to remove. I 'll try and find the thread on here on how to do it. http://www.snowmobileforum.com/ski-d...-800-seat.html Here you go. If you snap the T bolts off you can replace them when you have cover off. Here is a link on DIY seat cover Upholstery -- Recover your Snowmobile Seat I found my post when I recovered my Summit seat which is the same as yours but the photos have been deleted off of photobkt. It wasn't that hard to do. I reused the glove box flap on the 1st one I did and recovered the 2nd one I did.

Sometimes the bolts go all of the way through the tunnel and into the compartment of the seat so if you do break a bolt, no biggie. Take a look in there and under your rear bumper, about 12 inches in.

thanks, found the bolts!

they are very difficult to get at as the deck they run through is ribed and my short 10mm socket was too wide to get around the ribbing, purchased some longer metric sockets today that are a little narrower at the socket end, will try again tonight. again thanks
