Running RCA cables in a 'vert

Can anyone post me instructions on running RCA and remote switching cables from the front door through the rear seat and into the trunk in a Convertible E46...

I know how to get the glove box out and side sills off and kick panels off.... but need to know what to do once I get to the back of the seats and how to get the rear seat off, and how to get the cables through to the boot / Trunk...

Thanks again

Tesh, I think the trim removal for your model will be similar to teh coupe - if so, rear seat squab is removed by lifting at the front edge each side, this will release the clips and allow it to be slid forwards and out. Just watch the side armrests in the back to make sure you don't scrape them

Once that's out, the side bolsters which run down the sides between back rest and side panel are held in a couple of places. First thing to do is to push the pin down in the top of the retaining clip, this allows the expansion rivet to be lifted out. One that's out the bolster is held in with a tension clip which you can reach weith a long bladed driver through the hole you've just exposed in the previous step. These clips are quite tight but as you release it, the top of the bolster will be able to swing forward. From there, there's a guide which is a slide fit at the bottom so lifting the bolster up and out will clear it. It's a lot easier to undertand once you've got it off an can see the retaining points.

Not a lot of good when you're trying it blind for the first time but try the points above and see how it goes.
