Directions from the Fisher Body Manual:

1. Remove head restraint from seat back.

2. Using a flat-bladed tool, carefully snap off seat back lock push button and escutcheon assembly (I believe in is held in place with two metal clips, feels like you're going to break it, but if you go slow it should be fine) and remove two screws securing seat back panel to lock assembly.

3. Tilt seat back forward and remove three screws securing bottom of seat back panel to seat back frame.

4. Pull bottom of seat back panel outward and lift panel upward to disengage panel from upper retainers; then, remove panel from seat back.
