Default Back seat removal

Hello!

I think I may know the answer to this already, but just confirming before I go at it tonight.
The middle seat belt buckle at gone through the hole where it normally sits, and is now under the back seat. This happened before and I was able to fish it out with my fingers, not this time hahaha.

I am assuming, just like with my other 2 previous vehicles, that the seat just snaps into place, which means I just have to give it a good tug to pop it out?

thanks

Matt

No need to remove the seat. When it happened to me, all I did was slide my hand and arm under the seat (plenty of space to do so) fish around to locate the buckle, locate the hole and push it back through. You can use your free hand to grab it on the top side or you can ask someone else to help you. Took me all of 20 seconds.

This happens all the time due to bad design. But no need to remove the seat. The under of the seat is easily accessible from the front.
