No need to remove the seat bolts or seat. Simply raise the electric seat to its highest position, then I used a small 1/4" drive socket set with an approximate two inch extension. The screws are Trilobe thread forming design so only require a little force and rotation to screw in. I found loosely installing the two rear T30 Torx screw first holds it in place, then the other four front bolts are 10mm. You'll need to unclip a small gray control unit nearby from its mount for better access, and this requires no tools. Do not unplug any harness, it is not required. Total install time 12 minutes. Mount kit with hardware purchased from ECS Tuning. Thanks for all the earlier posts, they were helpful before taking to the job myself.
