Removing rear seat back for shock install

Just as the title says, I am replacing all four shock absorbers on my 1979 240D (w123). The front shocks were installed with little hassle, I need to remove the rear seat back to put in the rear shocks.

What is the procedure for doing so? I already know how to remove the seat portion but am unsure of the back part. Figured I would ask first before tackling the rear shocks.

Thanks in advance for all responses...

you will not have any difficulty unless there is rust under the seat.

pull out the bottom section, then take out the 4 8mm screws that hold the bottom of the seat back in, then lift and pry and wiggle it out.

two screws in the center near the seat belts, and one on each outside edge.
