Hi Mike.

Take out the rear seat by removing the 2 - 12mm bolts that hold in the bottom seat. The bottom cushion is held in at the rear by a loop that goes over a hook in the center. Push the seat towards the back, then pull up at the rear and it should come off. Then remove the 3 - 12mm bolts that hold the seat back in place. After the bolts are out just pull up and it will come off. Notice the 3 places it is held in at the top. You'll want to make sure you get them back on when replacing it.

Remove the 3 - 12mm strut tower bolts with a stubby handled ratchet.
