Default stratus from 1991 question

ok one of my neighbours just gave me his old stratus(2,5 liter v6) cause he didnt want it. its a convertible so i took it without any further hesitation. the car in general is in perfect state and its pretty new(50000 miles). ok so it took me ages to figure out where the battery was but i found it. now i need to get to the fuel tank but i cant figure out how to lift the rear seats. any suggestions?? thanks!

galloway,

Going by the way you have spelled NEIGBO(U)R, and the fact that you have a Stratus convertible, I'm guessing that you are across the pond. England? Elsewhere? In the States, there was no Stratus Convertible. I'm guessing they put the Stratus name on the U.S. Sebring model for overseas sales.

Anyway....the rear seats should come out similar to any others. Shove back (towards the trunk), on the seat base while simultaneously pushing slightly up to pop the seat base from it's front brackets. You may need to give it a pretty good shove!!
If you need to remove the backrest, then by the time you get the base removed, the backrest will be self-explanatory.

Thing is, I'm not sure you can get to the fuel pump from there. Not sure though.
The only other alternative, if you can't, is to drop the tank. It seems pretty much guaranteed by CHRYSLER TECH's post in the third line under REMOVAL;

Break out the big jack stands, or find a friend with an auto lift! Oh and try to run out as much fuel as possible to make things a little lighter!!

I had to do a fuel pump in my old 1995 Pontiac Grand Prix.......on the cold concrete floor........in winter.........with tiny jack stands..........and limited tools! Not fun, especially since it had a 1/2 tank of fuel in it at the time!! Luckily, these days I have a 2-post electro-hydraulic lift at my disposal. Best damn investment I've ever made for working on my own stuff!

Best of luck to you! Hope it goes well!
