With a Philips Cross Head Screwdriver or if yours is a late model a Torx T30 driver, remove the 2 bolts holding the seat lock mechanism

 

 


fitting10  Take 2 of the supplied washers and place them underneath the seat lock


fitting11

 

Align 1 Washer with each of the 2 bolt holes and place the Lock Mechanism back. Taking care to keep the washers in place. This raises the lock slightly to make engagement in the Seat Latch easier

And align the bolt holes. You may need to jiggle things around and possibly initially use something pointed in the hole to achieve this. It’s worth putting a bolt in and turning with fingers to find the thread bite point. Do not force/cross-thread the bolts

 

 


fitting22  Re-fit the 2 bolts on this side. Short front / Long rear.  Leave loose


fitting23  That’s the left ArmourDillo fitted
