Removing electical rear seat

Hi,

As I am going to remove the rear struts on my 6.9 the rear seat bench has to be removed as well.

As my 6.9 has the electrical rear seat it seems that this is not as easy as it is on the cars without
electrical rear seat.

Removing the rear seat cushion was straight forward.
But how to remove the back rest?
I removed the two screws that attaches the back rest to the guide rails and the two screws
for the backrest frame (red circles in my picture).
Now the bottom of the back rest is free.

The back rest in standard cars is removed my pulling the back rest upward. But this doesn't seem
to work here.
Anyone has done this before? What's the trick?

Thanks!
Thomas
