Start by removing the plastic molding. First remove the plug by pulling it out slightly with your nails, then use the needle nose plyers. Pull out straight to reduce chance of breaking the part.

Next Unbolt the 2 bolts that require a T-50 bit. If you have the right tools you can skip unbolting the bolt shown with a red circle and just unbold the bold shown with a red square.

You don't have to unbolt the seat from the bracket to remove them. You can just unbolt the bracket and remove the seats that way.

Better to remove seats in one piece

As suggested above, just remove the four 13mm and one T50 bolt in each bracket, and remove the seats intact. Saves a lot of work.
