Hello

Why do you need to remove the rear seat frame?

It is not a usual thing to do.

There are 4 fixing, two at the front that you have already found but there are two more directly in line with these but at the very rear of the frame.

You may need to move the seat cushion at least to access the two hidden seat frame screws.
