It's pretty easy, I removed the rear seat when I put in wires for my stereo.
Here are the instructions from the Bentley manual:
Pull the front of the rear seat cushion up to release the clips. While holding the front of the cushion up, pull it forward to remove it.
Remove the left and right side backrest mounting fasteners. (They are down by where the seatbelt is bolted in.)
Pull up on the backrest to detatch it from the top retainers. Slide backrest to the side to clear the seatbelts while removing. note: if your car is equipped with rear heated seats, detatch the electical connectors as you remove teh seat components.
When re-installing, be sure to pull the seatbelts and buckles up through the appropriate slots in the seat cushion.
If you need to remove the headrests for some reason, just slide them up as far as possible, then press the guides back and pull it upward to remove it.
