W115 rear seat removal?

Hi, the rear seat of my W115 doesn't wanna come out. I'm probably doing it wrong but I've tried and tried and nothing. The bottom part is out already but the back part of the seat is the one stuck. Any info on how to remove it?

It's been a very long time, but on the 110 models, there are fasteners on the inside lower fender hump areas, and on the trunk side upper bulkhead area--four total. From my hazy memory, the 115 may drop into an upper lip on the package tray and then use two lower bolts

So I should check the trunk and maybe the fender too? It makes sense, no wonder I can't remove it. Similar stuff happened to me with the headlights lol.

Kaelor: Did you ever have any luck in getting the seat back out?

So far I've removed the nuts at the base of the seat back (pic 1), and the two that go through to the trunk area (pic 2). Are there any more that I'm missing? Do I just need to pull it in a certain way to get the seat back out?

I believe it's just four nuts for the back seat. I always pull the bottom of the back out first.

You should be clear to pull.

Did you removed the seat belts? I think they link to the seat too, can't remember correctly but I did took out the seat belt bolts for the back. Try pushing and lifting the back seat at the same time.
