Backseat removal?

Anyone know if you remove the back seat (non-folding) it you would still have the opening or is the chassis closed off?

Mainly as non-folding seats are ok 90% of the time but when you do need them and donít have them itís a right pain. Just want to know if, although taking more time, you would be able to just remove the seat when needed

I guess this doesn't fully answer your question, but here's the detail on how to remove the non-folding rear seats:

You can probably tell from the interior in the rear whether there appears to be any metal bracing that closes the chassis from the trunk. I suspect not, as the chassis is no doubt designed to cater for both folding and non-folding variants.

Seems like that part of the car frame is consistent, whether you have the folding seats or not.

Thanks! Didnít know those sites

Yeah I agree it would make sense that the body is the same but I remember this wasnít on all models. Would make things easier to find decent specced ones as the split seat option here in the UK is rare.
