water too deep

Hi, Teryx felled sideways into 3 feet of water (missed the bridge) everything ok except plenty of water trapped in the seat and can't get rid of it, any idea?

Sorry, can't help, but we would all like to see some pictures of that!!!

Maybe just taking the seats off and letting them sun bake?

sorry no pictures, was kind of an emergency to get it out of there,(incredible but that thing started on the first try after being in the water for 45 minutes and made it out with only little help of the winch)

sun could take a long time since there seem to be plenty of water in there, when I shake the seat, I can hear water moving, so far the only way to get rid of it is to step on the seat , crushing the foam and then some water will come out, but there's still plenty in it and I've been doing it a lot...

Hopefully you drained and replaced the oil before you started it up again....?

will probably end that way, funny thing is even if I can hear there's plenty of water in the seat it's still dry and confortable, water is really trapped somewhere...

Finally got rid of that water! Drilled 2 holes in the plastic bottom of the seat sort of a compartement is formed there and that was the answer so end of the story.

man my right seat has done that since new. i can hear water in there but cant get it out. i will drill some holes and see what happens. also everytime i take the engine skid plate off water just pours out of the bolt holes. i am thinking abot drilling some holes in the lower frame rail so it can drain.
