1992 GMC Vandura - How to remove seats

How do you remove seat bolts from a '92 GMC Vandura/Explorer conversion? I’m converting my van into a camper and can’t get the seats out. I’ve had my mechanic try and an auto upholstery specialist. There isn’t any loctite color on the bolts. The nuts turn but don’t descend. The bolts aren’t turning. What is this madness?

You might try either a nut splitter or a cutoff wheel to remove the nuts, then drive out the bolts with a pin drift.


Your mechanics are very poor. Any halfway good mechanic knows how to remove rusted bolts and nuts.


Those are non-removable lock nuts, and must be cut off.
