remove the panel to gain convenient access to the two inner bolts of the seat.
the two outer-most bolts don't run through the floor.
after all that the seat should come out.

3rd Pic: Red=first inner bolt(closest to driver) Yellow is panel & bolt that Needs to be removed. 2nd anchor should be a foot or so behind
I coulnt get my seats out because the bolts are rusted like hell.
actually, there's no need to get underneath and remove any bolts.
I have a 94 previa with the 2 swiveling captain's chairs. I took out the right side seat by removing the pastic covers (as previously indicated - there are only 4 small plastic covers you need to remove and this can be done quickly without any damage by using a small putty knife to pry the covers off), and then removing the 4 bolts from the floor that hold the seat in place. The bolt holes are threaded, and the bolt on the underside that your pic refers to is spot welded or attached in some similar fashion to the body and can't be removed (easily, that is).
It's a pretty simple procedure and took me all of 15 minutes.
