Be there done that, but with a penny. All you can do is either get real aggressive with a hammer and long metal object as a punch or pull the seat. The seat should have 4 bolts. One at each end of each track. Ising a 1/4 in drive rachet and either a 1/2 or 9/16 socket should work. 1/4 in drive is low profile.. good luck

The seat bottom needs to be removed before the seat back, and you can't get around that. You'll have to put your hand on the front vertical portion of the cushion near the floor of the car, and push it towards the rear about 1 inch, then push it up away from the floor. Your hand should be located at the center of where a passenger's body would be. Repeat for the opposite side. Once the seat bottom is out of the way you can access the bolts that hold the seat back in place, and then that cushion needs to be pulled up towards the roof.

The seats should have a couple of bolts one on each side of the car, they are on the inside where the front of the seat meets the floor, sometimes they are partially hidden as the seat cushioning drops down over them. Remove both the bolts and then pick the front of the seat up and slide the back forward then work the seat belts through the seat. The panel should just gently pry off, try one corner gently to get it started, if it doesn't act as if it wants to budge then stop and inquire more in depth information on it.
Push the lower seat cushion toward the rear of the car and lift, there's 2 hooks approx. 12" or so either side of the center of the seat.
The seat back is held in with 2 bolt located on the lower outside corners.

Sorry to here that, not sure why someone would remove the seat.
There are (2) bolts that hold the seat cusion in place. One located on either side of the seat cushion about one foot in from the outside edge of the cushion on the bottom front edge.
If you lift the rear seat cushion up and look on the bottom of the cushion, you will notice a metal tab with a hole in it, both right and left sides.
On the floor pan there should be 2 metal tabs with nuts attached on either side to line up with the tabs on the seat cushion. You will need (2) 13mm headed bolts that are 2.5 inches long each.
They are not very easy to install.
Good luck, let me know.
OK. On the front edge of the seat bottom cushion, pull up hard, both sides. This will dislodge the 2 clamps that holds the seat cushion to the floor. Pull the seat cushion out & set it aside. You will now see the female latches bolted to the area where the rear of the seat cushion meets the rear seat back bottom. Remove the bolts (14 mm I think).
