Does it not just pull straight upwards to remove it? May take a little bit of a tug. If that does not work, you may have to remove the seat to get at the bottom of the seat pan.

Turns out through a little investigation that the adjustment screw on the backrest must be removed first.Them the ba krest simply slides straight up and out.
Keep in mind this is a Corbin seat set up
