Removing the rear seat

I have a 06 charger se, and i need to know to remove the backseat so that i can get to the rear speakers so install new ones. I have already taken the seat cushion off, i just cant get the back part off. Does anyone know how to do that. The service manual doesn't tell you how to take it out.

Thank you

Move your front seats all the way forward. Get in the back. One side at a time, drive one of your knees into the front of the seat at the center of where someone would sit. Push as hard as you can toward the trunk. Put both your hands in the crack behind one of the seats, and pull up toward you with very steady, firm pressure at a 45 Degree angle. You will hear a pop when it releases. Move over to the other side and do the same thing. There are two u-shaped wires (about 1 1/2") that go into a slots on ether side at the front. The seat is nothing more than a big pad that is cliped into place. Hope this helps out.

i stuck my hand at each corner and felt for the clip. then i took a long flat tip screwdriver and pushed down on the clip while pulling on the seat. then pull up and out.

the clips are in the far corners. like at 9 and 3 o clock. pull the corners forward and stick you hand down and feel for a metal clip piece. once found push down with a large flat head.

"Seat Removal":
Here's the details, see the attached picture and refer to these steps:

Step #1: On each corner of the rear lower seat, pull up hard, until you hear it pop out of the car floor (it has metal loops that "plug" into the floor) - then remove the lower seat so that you can get to the "nuts" in step #2.

Step #2: loosen the "nuts" on Bolt #1 and Bolt #2 enough so that the seat can be tilted forward when you push down the Metal spring clips in Step #3.

Step #3: Push down Spring clip # 1, by sliding a long flat-head screw driver between the rear upper seat and the trunk wall (it takes some Trial and error), until you feel the metal spring clip go down - then tilt/pull that part of the seat forward - insert something between the trunk wall and the upper rear seat, to keep it from popping back in. Then do the same for Spring Clip #2.

Step #4: Then, once you are sure that the spring clips are dis-enganged, lift the upper rear seat (part) up, out and then tilt down. You can't go to far with it because of the attached seat belt straps.

.... And that is it
