Just slide both seats forward and tilt forward as well. No need to remove.
The wall carpet then can be removed to access the panel.
Similar as the engine cover carpet and panel

Nope, I was able to get in there and change the belt and water pump without removing the seats. I'm also 228 and 6'2".

I did it with my racing seats in the car and they don't even tilt forward!

You need just enough room to put your foot in it!
