    • 1). Clear the area under the seats of any items stored under there. Use the pocket screwdriver to disconnect any wiring harness that may be connected to the seat (this only applies to power seats). The pocket screwdriver is used to release the retaining clip on the wiring harness connector.

    • 2). Unbolt the seat legs from the floor of the truck with the socket set. Each seat should have four legs, with four bolts and four washers. Repeat this with each seat you wish to replace. Once all four bolts and washers are removed, set them within easy reach for ease of reassembly.

    • 3). Move the seat or seats out of the truck. You may be able to do this yourself, but it will be easier if you have a helper assist you, especially if this is a bench seat. Make sure you do not let the seat legs contact any part of the truck, as they can easily damage the F150s interior or scratch the paint.

    • 4). Set the old seats off to the side where they won't get in the way during the rest of the job.

    • 5). Move the new seats into the truck in reverse of how the old ones were removed. Align the seat legs with the mounting holes in the F150's floorboard and thread the bolts back down into the holes, through the seat legs. Make sure to reinstall the washers.

    • 6). Reattach any wiring harness connectors you disconnected in step one, if applicable.
