How to remove the rear seat bottoms?

I would like to be able to remove the rear seat bottoms so that I can fold the seat backs down without sacrificing leg room in the front. I think the screws holding it in place may be torx, I tried using an allen wrench with no luck. Can anyone tell me exactly what I need to remove these screws? Thanks in advance.

If it's a torx screw why are you using an allen wrench? Use the right tool and you won't have a problem. There's an obvious difference between torx and allen heads.

I'm not going outside to look but knowing ford, it's probably a T45, T47, T50, or T55. I doubt it's a T55 torx though. Like the other poster said, you will need a torx bit (in one of those sizes) to remove the seats. An allen wench will never work.

I did go outside and look, and a T40 seemed to do the trick.

Thanks very much, I really appreciate your help. I didn't want to have to buy a whole set of bits just to determine the right size. Again, thanks.
