TD seat mounting different than sedan?

I am planning to try the pool noodle trick, but my wagon seat mounting brackets loof different that both the haynes manual and the skinnerbox site manual. The reat of the front seat mounting point does not have a bolt head exposed and there is what appears to be a push down tab at the base of the slide rail. The seat didn't seem to want to extend out the back though. Any thoughts?

I see what appears to be a bolt coming up inaccessibly from the bottom, right at the floor and then a screw securingthe top slide rail to the lower black base.

Scoot your seat all the way forward, and raise it up all the way. The back bolts going to the floor should then be accessible.
