    Slide seat as far back as possible. Get a flat head screwdriver and pop up the ends of the rails. Remove them and then take the longer silver covers off too. Then you should be able to slide the seat forward to the gaps where you can lift the seat out.
    There are places on here that describe it (maybe better) but instead of just giving you a link I thought I'd try and describe it.
    Good luck!

    I found it to be a total PITA the first time, took forever to get the silver covers off and thought I'd never do it again. But then every time since its been much much easier...it all just needs loosening up.

    Removed mine for the first time on Sunday. Wished I had videod the salesman showing me how to do it on handover. Tried levering up the ali rail ... Noooooo. then checked the forum ....

    Fairly easy once you know how, but it's certainly a heavy bugger. Useful to have someone inside the van telling when it's clear to lift up (straight up). It's now taken up residence in the spare room - an unusual bedside chair. No leaving it in the garage for the mice to feast on.
