Recent issue with the rear seat back of my daughter's 2006 wagon (5D, SC). The problem was that the seat back trim panel was disconnected from the middle edge of the 60 pct side and was binding against the rear floor carpet and panel.
I followed WIS online "To Remove" for the 40 pct side, and it was accurate. But for the 60 pct side things did not correspond to the WIS. I found no "upholstery clip" on the LH side (outside) pivot, though it seemed there was a little embossed tab to hold one. The seat was/is firmly locked to the pivot with its spring. Can any one comment on whether there were running changes to the rear seat pivot points and how to remove ?
Fortunately, I was able to restore the proper fit of the seat back back trim panel without removing the 60 pct seat back. I released the slotted plastic 1/4 turn twist fastener at the latch and removed one T20 Torx screw. Then I popped loose the snap fasteners holding the trim to the metal seat back, and I could reattach the middle edge of the panel as it should be. I re-fastened the snap fasteners and re-installed the seat back latch cover. Then I tucked the rear carpet back under the plywood floor panel. I installed the 40 pct side, and it's all fine now.
But if I were trading seat backs or needing a full removal I cannot see the solution on this car. I will check my other daughter's 2006 when I get a chance, just in case someone worked on this car before and did something "non-standard".
