    1.  Fold down rear seatbacks;
    2.  Pull down the spring-loaded plastic piece that is at the passenger
comparment end of the tracks;
    3.  Pull out toward the front, one rod at a time - you will feel resistence
from a spring retainer at the end of the track that keeps the rods from sliding
out of the track.

    Be careful that you pull the rods out straight toward the front of the
vehicle.  The plastic "wheels" at either end of the rods are pretty fragile and
are known to chip or break if the rod is removed at an angle.
