How do you remove broken seat lock assy

All,

On my 07 660 the drivers side seat latch/lock assy broke. The seat is still on the rhino and I cannot relase the latch. I have ordered a new one, how do you remove the old one? Since it is plastic can I just stress it or is there a way to get something up in there and release it?

if you look in toward the pin, you can see a wire across the front - get something to pull that wire forward, lift up and it will release from the pin. These latches break real easily.

The night i did and was driving back to camp not going fast, just putting along. I hit a kiddie track berm at pismo, i never seen it, drove over the top of the berm and nosed the rhino hard, we were ejected thru the front onto the sand, and both seats. They detached no problem. Weird how easy that was.

awesome. just broke the passenger's side latch. I will try this to remove the seat.

In life and racing, when in doubt, gas it.

I found a simple and FREE tool to remove the seat when the latch breaks. Go to Ace hardware and ask them for a paint can opener. Yup. It has a hook on one end to open the cans, and a spot to get just the right pull on the metal pin. Hook it under, pull, and voila! Pic attached.
