I use the ThermaCare heatwraps, those help soothe an aching back.
I find it a little bit easier to work with the 2nd row captain chair seat when you fold the seat back to the folded flat and locked position. You pull the seat back recliner lever and fold the seat back all the way forwards. It is still a beast to heft around, but a slightly more compact and less unwieldy beast.
Also, slide the front seats all the way forward and lean their seat backs forwards so you have a little room to work.
My 1996 Ford Windstar had similar 2nd row captain chairs, but the worst was lifting and removing the third row 3 seat bench. That weighed almost as much as a sofa bed. We used that van a lot with the 3rd row seat removed for extra cargo in the back. Very nice feature to have the 3rd row bench in the Pacifica fold into the floor.
