Rear seat storage

When you unlock the rear boot it also unlocks the seat. If you study the seat it is obvious that it is designed to be reversed, however there is a rivet of sorts under the pad that holds it in place. How can this be removed or is it a safety feature stopping the seat coming out?

Anyone know?

It would make a nice storage area if no passenger. Big enough for a bag or a coat

Although not recommended some owners have broken the rivet off and use the seat as a storage area. It is still a puzzling design change to fix the seat that was so obviously going to be a usable option.

I am also informed the rivet breaks off fairly easily! Although I not tried it.

So here is a video of the very thing.

I don't think it is worth having. A good waterproof bag and a exomesh. All of which can be kept in the rear storage. Like this:
