On my seats, these push into matching holes in the seat frame...

It's just tucked into place ... once you undo the pins, fold back the pins,
and untwist the wire, it should all come apart in a straightforward manner.
You will, of course, need to remove the seatback from the base and you will
need to be careful removing the plastic trim pieces covering the hinges but
this really is a very simple job.  I don't think it took me 30 minutes from
start to finish, *including* removing and reinstalling the seats!
