Unhappy Front seat back

The trim that holds the netting that is on the back of my front seat has separated from the screw that holds it. I need to remove the seat back and retighten the trim. I tried removing the 2 screws on the bottom and prying, but it seemed VERY tight. I could not pry it off (I am afriad I will break something!!)

What is the secret to getting these to come off?

On my 190e the trick was to pull straight down towards the floor after the screws are removed, should just slip right off.

Good luck

The seat bolsters provide the tension that keeps the seatback in place.

So you need to relieve the load by simultaneously pressing down on the bolster near the side that you are removing the seatback from the channel.

Just remove one side only, as you can easily access whatever you need by swinging it outward. Otherwise you have to get both channels back into place (not fun)
