    Taff, the back seat bolts are held tight with loctite.
    You will more than likely round off the bolts if you force them.

    You need to make sure you have a very good fitting Torx50 bolt head & then slowly unwind half a turn, then tighten up quarter turn (this helps to break the loctite).
    Kepp doing this until bolts unwinds freely.
    Will take some time, but better than rounding off the bolts.
    Use a big, strong ratchet, or a breaker bar.

    The 2 bolts on the front seat are also held fast with loctite too.

    These are Torx40 iirc.

    Be just as careful when re-fitting seats too.
    You can round them off just as easy when tightening them up.

    Take your time & all should be ok.

    or find sum1 with a windy gun

    I used my 24v impact wrench and it worked a treat

    Pete's method above is probably the best though
