I was trying to remove my back seats the other day and couldnt mange! I got the bit where you bum sits completely out no problem.
The bit which supports your back i managed to fold over and the middle came out/apart but both the left and right sides were joined to the plastic of the interior under the rear windows :confused: its a bar that goes through the seat and into the plastic trim.
How do i get these bits out? do i have to remove the plastic interior trim?

Here's the instructions from the DIY section:
To remove them:
Remove the seat bench, by first pulling up sharply at each front corner to release the clips there, and then yanking the whole seat bench out of the rear center clip.
Fold seats backs flat, headrests down.
Remove the 10mm bolt from anchor point between the seats.
Flip the catch plate on the top of the anchor point upwards freeing the seat pivots.
Starting with the left seat (there's a reason for this) gently pull the seat pivot upwards and free of the anchorage point but don't tip the seat upwards more than necessary.
While applying gentle sidewards pressure to the seat, inwards toward the center of the car (pull it from the bottom only level with the outer pivot point), tilt the seat fowards and backwards until it frees itself from its outer fixing point. The pivots have two pegs which pop out from the fixing point in the right tilt position (usually around 45 degree tilt forwards).
Take care not to move the seat too much any other way but forwards and backwards tilt, or the outer fixing point will break. Try to move the seat only as much it does when fixed in place, only allowing just enough tilt to clear the other seat when it pulls free.
Repeat for the right side.
Good luck! :)
