First you start by unsnapping the covers, be careful, that go over the driver/passenger door sill area.

The rear bottom back seat comes out by pulling up on each side and it will come out. For the rear upper seat area just unbolt the 5 bolts, pull down on the rear seat release and take the entire assembly out.

Each rear side panel is held in place by snaps. Start at the upper part of the side panel where it meets the B pillar, and just keep unsnapping all the way around until it comes off. Repeat for the other side.

Key to all of this is to be gentle otherwise you will have broken snaps or panels.

Good luck.

You probably already know but don't forget to torque the seat back when you reinstall it.

You do not need to unbolt the 5 bolts for the top, There is a latch at the bottom of the 2 sides it metal in color and you can move it all the way to the open point and lift only the seat.

I agree with the latch to remove the seat, I noticed that when I was in there but it seemed to be more trouble than it was worth. I gave up trying that method, it was easier for me to just unbolt it. Has anyone noticed the clips at the bottom of the quarter trim? Mine were not installed I found them in the body cavity behind the quarter trim just laying in there.

The latch on mine would not release on one side so I opted to take out the assembly. If you can get them both to release as 2SSRS indicated it would be easier. I have attached what another Forum member had posted on taking out the rear seat, panels, and door sill covers. Sorry just found it this morning and hope it helps.
