Forgot about this, just threw in the towel on the rear seat clips, was going to make a tool to compress the tabs so they could be removed with breaking them. Four Chevy dealers could not tell me how to do this without wrecking those clips, have a very sharp edge that locks them firmly replaced.
Tell me they wreck them and have to replace them with new ones, this is what they look like.
MTD lawn dethatcher had a single tab like that for a plastic belt cover, and actually too large for the hole, easy to press in, impossible to remove it. On this thing, grabbed my Dremel with a sanding drum on it, so I could bevel the top edge and thin it.
Not even sure why they did it this way, still was held in by three screws. Designer must have had a fight with his wife or something. On the Cruze, can put in a half inch thick board to get some working room, and push that tab in with a screwdriver, but need something to get at the rear tab.
Feel the same guy that designed the tab on that MDT also designed the one in the Cruze, wouldn't mind meeting him in a dark alley.
If I can manage to remove them, would bevel off the top 90 degree sharp edge, not a logical reason in the world they have to be that tight.
Don't know whether to trust this seller or not, set of four clips from China, free shipping, total US price, $4.98.
