Floor Bolts removal

Well I’m going to remodel this 1996 Holiday Rambler. Have a long list of things to do and one of them is tear out dinette as I have done. Here’s the question
What do you do with the bolts up thru the floor? This has a solid wood floor in that area. We are replacing the carpet on the rest of the floor but kinda wanted to save the wood floor. Can these be knocked back thru the floor or how are they attached below. Here are couple pics. They are 3/4 inch bolts that held the seatbelt frames 8 in total.

You might check underneath and see where these bolts are and how they were attached.

When I redid my flooring there the seat belts were they just went through the floor and had large washers underneath. I'd remove the bolts but seal up the holes from underneath.



If you can find a piece of flooring you might be able to use a hole saw less the pilot bit and make some disc that would drop into the hole.

So your thinking they screw in or are pushed up from under the coach body if so, I wonder if I can just pound them thru the floor and seal from above. Im a little old and just had shoulder surgery couple months ago so getting under coach is probably not going to happen to soon.

Yes, if those are the bolts that hold the front seats, seat belts (basically anything safety related), very likely there are thru-bolts and may have backing plates below.



Yes, I would look from below before doing anything, just to confirm.

So these are from the dinette booth seats, they had a large looked like roll cage frame that the seatbelts were attached to underneath.

I pulled out my dinette assembly, with the seat belt framework inside. The floor bolts looked identical to your picture, and the bolts with large washers had been pounded up through tight holes from below. I simply pounded them back down and out. Just make sure you're not pounding them down into something that was built down below them.

For stability of the new vinyl plank flooring above, I used a 2" hole saw to cut out the plywood around each hole and then glued in a non-drilled 2" piece of new plywood.

Oh good. I just opened the basement door under that area and there is a black I assume underbelly, I see no bolts there so almost afraid to pound any back thru and ruin that. Can send pic if needed

I had two bolts whose heads I could not see, and so I didn't dare pound them down. I just pulled out the Sawzall and cut them flush at the floor.

Why not take a Dremmel tool and just cut them off flush ?
