Yeah, those plastic screws are usually "one use". As for the seats, they have Permatex 2 already, (blue), so they're tough to get out the first time. Personally, I use anti-seize on mine, since once they're out, there's a good chance the threads'll rust. I torque them "shoulder tight", if that helps.
There's only one place on the carpet that you need to cut, and they'll go back in easily (so I'm told, anyway). I'd suggest using a bedliner inside your whole tub. I'm not even sure where my carpet is...................
