Not much under the seats that would cause a leak. If you have a sunroof, they can leak due to blocked drains (1 at each corner).

There is a 94-97 Accord shop manual link on Online Manuals post in DIY forum that will provide guidance on seat removal.

good luck

In the picture, look at the seat base #11. Left of center, there's a bolt holding it in. Squeeze between the seat base & back, find that & get a socket wrench on it.


Then you can slide the seat-base forward & unhook it. Been a long time, but maybe you'll have to tilt the seat up, kinda like hinging it at the front edge. Pretty similar for most Hondas, it was that way for my 95 Integra, 98 Accord, 03 Accord, etc.

Ok i just pulled out the backseat and the passenger rear had a puddle of water under it and the other side was moderately damp.......in the trunk the passenger side (right) is a little wet along the side only and nothing in the spare wheel area....nothing form above as well....and nothing from the rear passenger side window as well......I'm hoping tail light but i haven't had a chance to completely dry everything and start soaking area by area to pin point the leaking area...is there a possiblilty of rusting....under the seats how do i know? do i just jack up my car and have a look underneath b/c i dont see any rusts when i removed the seats...........

It seems like a taillight leak would get water in the trunk first, before getting into the rear seat area. Even the sunroof drain hoses go into the trunk area.

People have told about leaky rear-door weatherstripping, but I think that usually goes into the rear-seat footwell. This is a bit strange.

Some cars have drain plugs under the carpet in the foot well area of rear seats. Water might get in through these when driving through heavy rains.

good luck
