I need to remove my driver's seat. so In the pic below, 1 and 3 (fronts are called BOLTS while the rear 2 are called NUTS in that diagram). I tried as hard as I could on the WWW but couldn't find info re: the SIZE and type of Bolts for the front, and the SIZE and type of "nut" for the rear. This is a 2010 Escape, Driver;s power seat. Thanks, IA [Linked Image from nicksmustangranch.com]

I believe the front are 15mm bolts. Not sure what the rear size is. Be careful and remember to depower the car so the airbags do not explode.

Saved OP a phone call. This is the specs it would give us for any piece of hardware.

bdadmirals' answer is technically correct, in that a bolt is described by its thread diameter and pitch. OP probably wants the head socket sizes.

On my 2010 Escape I had to remove the bolts at the front of the passenger seat to install my Ram Mount for my laptop. It uses a large Torx, I forget what size. But anyway I replaced it with a regular hex bolt because I remove it and reinstall it quite frequently.

I really don't get these threads. How hard is it to look at the bolt on your car and try a few sockets on it? On a 2004 F-250 the front bolts are T-55 Torx and the back nuts 19mm.

Thanks everyone. The driver's seat doesn't have the Torx. (only the passenger seat does and it 's a Torx PLUS 55, not a regular Torx on the Escape) That info is somehow readily available on the the web, but for the driver's side, was not the case. The reason I asked was I DID try the sockets I had and none of them matched the front bolts. I also noticed i am missing 2 sockets from my toolbox. So I thought I'd better check the size to be sure I am borrowing / getting the correct sockets I need. Again, thanks for everyone's answers - i think I can now have a good ballpark idea of what sockets I will need, very probably a 15mm as several have said, for the fronts.
