- Small prying device
Remove padded seat end trim.
Remove the 2 retainer pins at the top of the trim by the seatback. These are two-piece retainers. Remove the top part of the pin first, then the lower. The top part of the clip looks like a philips screw, but it is not – it will just spin & spin. A prying tool like the one shown below is very helpful, though a small flathead screwdriver could work, too.
Get the prying tool in between the two parts of the head of the retainer, as shown below. 2nd picture shows the inner pin removed.
Installation is the reverse of removal.
