Default How do you remove front seats In SC400 1995?

Well i just got my car from my cousin and she didn't take too good care of it. Well there's a problem with the front passenger seat has something stuck or whatnot on the left rack so it won't move forward. How do you remove it? Is there any site or manual that can teach me how to take it out? I can't see what's stuck so I'm gonna need some assistance. =D Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

the problem is i can only remove the front two bolts and i cant find the other ones because the seat is pushed back pretty far... covering the rest.

... If i could do it, i would have already. The problem is i can't "scoot" it forward. Remember? Left rack stuck? Right side moves up a little bit but not enough?

Alrightey here's some updates:

I got the seat out.

The left track is stuck, won't move.

I can't figure out what's friggin wrong with it.

Are you in So Cal? I have an extra pair of seats you can pull the tracks off of if you want.

Exclamation Not actually stuck

If you talk a look at the chair from the underside on the side where the chair is not moving the is a plastic assembly and the cap to that assembly often comes lose and is what causes the seat not to move forward because the cap keeps the mechanism in place when the cap comes off the mechanism moves out of place and the slider does not move.

good luck
