There should be four bolts. One at each corner of the seat bracket. I think they're 12mm but double check. Remove all four bolts and wire harness(if you have power seats). You'll have to reach under the seat to find the harness. Move the seat all the way back to access the front bolts and all the way forward for the rear bolts.

Most avalons have side air bags as well and i've heard if you dont do it right they will deploy. So be careful.

Throwing 1,000 watts of rattle in your trunk does not mean you have a "system".

If you or someone you know has a booster pack, hook it up just long enough to power the seat. You could bring a good battery and hook it up. You could also take the good battery plus a set of jumper cables and power it that way.
