How to Remove the Seat on a Honda TRX 400

Removing the seat on your Honda TRX is not something to know how to do for the sake of doing it, but rather because you may need to access components and parts underneath it. 

For example, you won't be able to clean or change the air filter on your Honda ATV unless you get the seat off first. Follow the steps below to learn how to remove the seat on your TRX machine.

How to Replace the Seat on a Honda TRX400

Step 1. To engage the front of the seat, you'll need to line up three contact points. First, there are two hooks that engage with two rubber stoppers, and then there is also a U-shaped slot that must fit over a knob on the ATV.

Step 2. Get the seat back into position on the ATV. Check underneath the front of the seat to see if the hooks and the slot roughly line up with the stoppers and the knob. Next, push the front of the seat down onto the ATV, and then push forward from the rear. This should engage the slot and the hooks.
