2018 T350 Rear seat removal

Hi there-

We're about to pick up a 2018 15 passenger MR and want to pull out the back seats for more storage space. We also plan to install a platform that sits above the rear heat/fan box across the width of the van, and provides storage underneath... then install a small bulkhead of sorts (but not close to the ceiling or the sides of the van).

First step is to remove the back seats. I read in another post that the 2018 vans have a different install configuration for the rear seats. Wondering if anyone has removed them in this model year and can share with me what to expect and what we'll need to do it.

Thanks!

I removed the back row of our 2018 15 passenger wagon, it is the same as our 2015. The center double seat pulls out easily, the side two require unbolting both seat and seatbelts, not too difficult. I used an impact gun with torx bit, as the bolts are quite tight.

Thanks for this info and for asking the question. I have 9 kids (only 7 still at home) and need cargo room more than seats.

Really easy; remove the middle 2 first by unbolting the torx bolts and flipping then forward;
Then remove the plastic boxes (just pull them off) and remove the seat belt anchorages and the
torx bolts on the seat feet - flip them forward.

I was surprised how heavy these seats are - you may need 2 people to lift the middle 2 seats.

What you probably read is that beginning in 2019, there are a variety of seat delete options, but none of the seats remaining are different than standard.
