Pull straight up on seat base. It pulls right up. I like to open both doors and pull up where seat meets floor

There was one screw 'torx'on the rear of the trim piece that goes around the lower outside of the seat and around the seat controls. I tried to pull the trim piece up but no go. I looked under the seat and the trim piece has a number of tabs that hook into the bottom of the seat.

I assume you are either talking about the rear heated seat controls (rare option) in the center console or the door panels. Try this link it might help:

If its door panels look at the DIY sticky at the top.

I'm trying to remove the passanger seat trim panel that goes around the lower outside of the seat and trims out the seat controls. When I attempt to include a picture it asks for the URL for the picture. Over my head.
