I wanted to correct the record on this. On my '05 3.0i X5, I removed the bottom screws which are actually a 2-piece design with a philips head plastic screw in the center of a plastic expansion rivet. Try unscrewing the center plastic screw first - if you get it to drop from the plastic rivet, you can just pull it out. Then pry out the plastic rivet with a trim tool or similar.

Once the two plastic screw/rivets are out, You carefully pull the seat back DOWN and toward the rear to get it to release. You don't lift up.
