removing aerostar seats

I have a 1993 aerostar, Eddie Bauer edition. I am trying to remove the two captain chair middle seats for a vacation. Alas, I have no owner's manual. The passenger side seat is broken and can no longer be moved
out of the way to get to the rear set. hopefully that won't affect its removeabilityI can see some mechanism with a spring, but nothing seems to happen when I move it. How do I remove those middle seats?

Quick Release Rear Captain Chairs:
To remove:
1. For right hand seats, lift and rotate the seat latch handle (located under the seat) rearward, causing the J hook to disengage from the front floor well retainer. For left hand seats, lift and rotate the seat latch handle (located under the seat) rearward, causing the J hook to disengage from the front floor well retainer. Disengage the lap/shoulder safety belt from the seat by inserting a key or similar device into the slot in the detachable anchor and lifting upward. Stow the tongue end of the detachable anchor as shown.
2. Push the seat assembly rearward to disengage the front and rear floor hooks and lift the seat assembly from the vehicle.
To install the rear bucket seat:
1. Lift the seat assembly into the vehicle and drop the front and rear floor hooks into the floor wells at a point just behind the floor attachment pins.
2. Rotate the seat latch handle forward, causing the J hook to engage over the front of the foremost well retainer.
3. For right hand seats, continue rotating the seat latch handle until it comes to a complete stop on the top of the tube. This will cause the seat assembly to slide forward, engaging the front and rear floor hooks with the floor well retainers.
For left hand seats, push the seat latch handle downward to a full stop. This locks the seat in position. Before you engage the safety belt, be sure it is not twisted. Remove any twist, then insert the tongue end of the detachable anchor into the detachable anchor until you hear a snap and feel the latch engage.
