    Maybe a stupid question, but I'm trying to remove the storage bins behind the back seats. After I take out the bolts is there something else I have to do or do I just muscle them out? They will hardly budge.

    I just figured I'd ask before I break something.
    Thanks

    Did anything break when you pulled them out? I would like to be able to put them back in if I pull them out.

    One of the little clips on the back broke but nothing that would prevent it from going back in, and nothing you can actually see.

    just did this last week, it takes a lot of wiggling and hard pulling to get them out without breaking anything but just be patient if you're set on not breaking things. otherwise, yank em hard and you're good to go. you'll just break a couple of clips at most if you do.
