The plastic trim cover has to be removed - started in '92. I remember 
doing a writeup when I put the S6 seats in my 92 V8. There is a plastic 
block zip-tied into the rail to keep the seat from overtraveling to - as 
I recall, it has to be removed also to remove the seat. Other than that, 
its no different than any other type 44.
