Chino,

This is extremely easy if you don't make the same mistake I did. I assume you are trying to get to the battery??? Anyway, there are four bolts that hold the seat to the frame. You do NOT need to touch those four bolts to rotate the seat back. Those four bolts are black. There are two silver bolts under the carpet tabs at the front bottom of the seat box looking thing. Right at the rear of where your floor mat ends. You will need to pry up the carpet tabs, they are precut to allow you perfect access. Both are triple square M10 bolts. Cheap tools at any DIY auto parts store that fit into a 1/2" socket. Once you remove those two bolts you can rotate the seat towards the rear. I took lots of pics yesterday. Whole thing should take you about 30 minutes.

If you need to really get the whole seat out, the four bolts I mentioned previously are easy to get to by moving the seat fore and aft. There are plastic covers over each bolt at the front and rear of each seat track. They fit pretty well, but if you stick your head real close you will able to see the mold line where they separate. I did not even need a screwdriver to pop them off... just a fingernail and upward pressure. As I said, I will try to post some pics later if you have not figured it out already.
