most commonly you just grab the front of the seat bottom and pull up. they are not generally locked into place with bolts. If you have a folding seat like most modals do just remove the bottom of the seat and take the screws out.

The filler piece above the rear seat is held in place with two 13MM head bolts. When you fold the rear seatback down, you'll see them. Remove the bolts and gently draw it upwards. You also will need to remove the seatbelts, to fully remove the filler cushion piece. Take car with the cloth that's tucked into it.

Put your hands at the rear of the seat base & pull upwards, this pulls the seat base forward on the hinged, to remove the rear upright part of the seat In the boot there is a pull leaver which releases the rear seat, fold it down & then use a straight cut screwdriver to push the retaining catches away from where the seat is fixed, pull the seat up & job done
