Question about Kia Optima
Is a special tool needed to remove this panel? Pulling it back I see nylon clips over metal coils. Looks like installation is merely to slide under these metal clips until they latch. Can't see how the bottom is attached however
There is 2 elastic pieces that hook on the seat bottom once you unclip them the cloth part of the seat bottom will pull up to reveal 2 Phillips screws remove them and the panel should slide down to remove.

U will need to buy a can of spray white grease and clean and then lubricate all the tracks the door channels on as well as all the latches for the door, this will cure the issue in most cases, did allot of these while working at a Ford dealer.

This answer makes a mountain out of a mole hill! There are two screws directly under the light accessible from the trunk (in two hole, the wires come out of one of them)- just unscrew and you can manuever out without taking off the whole back panel.

Hidden screw underneath the power window switch, you have to remove, use a dull knife to gently pry up on the plastic molding, it should pop out with relative ease then you will see the screw.

just a standard screwdriver...
on the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge.

SOURCE: Kia Sedona seat stuck
Got it, with the help and eyes of my wife. The rear latch releases as the seat back is lowered. This release is ALMOST seat back down (about 3 inches above the seat bottom). As the seat back lowers, apply constant lift on the rear latch, and it will release as the seat back lowers. Hard-won knowledge - I think I invented some bad words in the process.
