Seat armrest removal

How do you detach the center folding arm rest from the seat? It on a 1973 450 sel.

I tried a hand impact driver, no luck. maybe for you it would work. I wound up drilling the screw heads, (metal is not very hard), then the head of the screws spun onto the drill bit, and the screw body unscrewed easily. replacement screws from MB dealer. I put rags around the carpet so the drilling fragments fell on them. easy cleanup!
