they are kind of a pain in the rear and may take a bit of finess, but yes, they just pop off. you shouldn't have any other issue other than the removal of the seatbelt.

you will need a T-50 torx, a little tip to prevent breaking of the knuckles buy or use(if you have one) a single solid 1 foot socket extention it will also make it easier to hold in place and will allow a slight angle if its tight..

took me about 7 min to remove all 8 seatbolts and remove the seats on my wagon :)

Don't forget to unplug the wiring harness.

put some tape or something at the ends on the brackets. you can scratch the panels around the doors or even the paint near the sills and pillar, but it is really easy to remove the seats.

XD yeah i forgot to mention that.. I actually dropped the seat back in the car after staring face to face with the Bomb thats embedded in my seat ( Airbag ) I still had the battery connected AND the seat was still wired.. I never realized the airbags were seat mounted Im used to pillar mounted ( to be exact I never realized that car HAD side impact airbags )

I use a piece of what they call Water pipe insulation tube on the handle of the ratchet I can bang all I want the 1/2 foam protects everything plus its nice on the hands when the bolt starts to jump from being seized
