I have a 61 and it should just slide out?

I am pretty sure there are two tabs that hold the seat part down in the front. You need to carfully place something under the front of the seat to pry it up and it should release. When the seat is loose it should slide forward (twards the front of the car) leaving just the seat back. The seat back has a couple of screws through the trunk side that need to be pulled, then it slides up and out. Well Best of luck

I strongly suspect that the retention brkt in a 2 door is in the same place (cross car) as the 4 door. Pry on the front lower edge of the seat cushion frame about 9 inches inboard from the rocker inner. Should pop right up and then slide forward as others have mentioned. I can pop my rear seat out with just using my fingers (no tools). Reinstall is the reverse - seat cushion frame in place and press down until the frame snaps over the retention brkt.
