remove the rear seat bottom (push in and up on the front of the two side seats)

Remove 2 seat belt bolts in the center and two large flat nuts on the sides.

Push back of rear seat up.

Flip over and unbolt the center console/pass-through.

post what you are going to do next.

Great info! I tried that today, and it'* not budging. Is there something in the back to be unscrewed? I removed the cardboard-like piece from the trunk area, and I see some more stuff to be unscrewed.

Ok, I actually got it unstuck! I also figured out how to remove the center armrest, and that'* out of the whole thing. Now, moving on!

I looked inside the armrest, and it seems like the black plastic part is held in by glue and black tabs. I was able to remove the cup holder part, but the rest isn't budging. Does anyone know how to remove that part?

I'll clarify with pictures in less than 15 hours, but for now:
I took out the four bolts that hold the folding out section inside the back seat. Now, there'* a hole between the two seats where the foldout armrest should be.

The foldout armrest and the black trunk door piece were held together by two screws. I took out those screws, and I pulled on the sides to release the leather-bound armrest from the rest of the armrest piece. Now, I just have the cup holder piece away from the back seat, and I'm trying to remove the black innards from the inside. I'll see if a Dremel can handle it.
