Removing front seats?

I assume the 2 front seats in the rangers take a torx bit right? is that a t55 bit? looks the same size as the bed bolts.. I want to take out my seats and clean the carpet for whatever reason my truck stinks inside like azz. think its time to clean my carpet thourougly. Thanks for the help

yeah :( wish mine had mm bolts. it's an 02 too pretty new. only reason im taking mine out is because somtimes when i get in my truck after having the windows closed for a while it smells weird my carpet is like spotless though no stains or anything so i dont see why it would smell.. and my seats smell fine. I read on another thread about the same problem and they guy said he steam cleaned his carpet and the funky smell went away, so that is my plan gotta borrow my neighbors torx set and breaker bar tho i need my own tools haha

just pull it out and use a scrub brush and rinse from the back side out
than hang it up to dry

i was told steam cleaners like to push the dirt and stuff in deeper into the fabric
