Will the footrest on an X4X5 or X7XX come off without seatpan removal?

I need to remove the footrest to get at the mower deck height adjustment to free it up. I looked at the pictures of the footrest and seatpan on the Deere Parts site, and the manual I have. They don't give any ideas on whether it's possible to remove the footrest without the seat pan.

I see some tabs shown on the footrest that appear to fit under the lip of the seat pan.

Anyone know if it's possible to remove the footrest without removing the seat pan? The seat pan looks fairly easy to remove, but if I don't have to, I won't.

I believe the pan must be removed to access the foot pads, on the other hand, I was able to replace the fuel filter without removing the pan, BUT there may have been a fair amount of choice words during that operation and something about wishing I had a 425 instead:banghead3
