    Khufu has a concise workshop manual for the interior online here:

    EDIT: The short version though; there should be a trim panel on the front-side of the base of the seat which you can pop-off (my pre-owned Recaros didn't have them though) - once you've got that off you should see a plate with either two bolts and a locating pin of sorts, or one bolt and two pins (memory failing me). Undo the bolt(s) there and push the seat towards the back of the car (but carefully though - there are stilll electrical connectors hooked-up underneath you don't want to damage :)) - once you've got the seat back far enough you should be able to manipulate it to get better access to the electrical connectors so you can un-hook them (precision screwdrivers come in handy here for undoing the cilps on the connectors as they're a bit fiddly).

    Regards,

    Rob.
