remove seat backs for fold down seats

Ok... I found a few threads on how to remove the seat backs for the non-fold down seats, u just pull at them really hard. But so far I've found no info on how to remove fold down seats in a coupe. I've tried removing a bunch of trunk pieces and found nothing. As far as I can tell, it's just that one 6 point screw between the seats. Or is it the 4 bolts that is holding that little bracket thing in there?

There is one T50 torx bolt between the two parts. Remove that, there is a metal tab that pivots and pulls out. With that out you lift the center of the seat and pull toward the opposite side of the car. There is a metal pin that acts as a hinge and mounting point..it will pull out and you are done. Takes 5min.

are u sure it's t50? or am i looking at the wrong screw. the t30 fits in there pretty snug.
yay. ok, after lots of pb blaster and lots of cursing, it finally came out with a torx wrench. then the seats came out very easily. custom sub enclosure here i go! :)
