If your seats are like the ones in my 2007, they appear to have been originally designed for quick release and removal. But on mine, there are no release levers on the front latches. I can stick a screwdriver under them and get them to release, but it's difficult. The best plan I've found is to cock the seats both forward, pop off the plastic covers and remove the hinges from the chassis with an impact wrench. It's pretty fast that way.

Once removed, you can flip over the seats and get the front brackets loose with a screwdriver. Then reinstall the brackets and the seats will pop back on to them when installed.
