Default W123 - how to remove seat upholstery?

Hi,

How do I remove the standard cloth seat covers from my W123?

I think I need to start by removing the trim from the back of the seat, but how do I do that and then what?

One phillips head screw right at the bottom. Once unscrewed back panel will slide down and can be eased out.

Much easier if the seat is out of the car.
