Jammed Seat

The seat on my LT is stuck closed. Not releasing. Any suggestions about how to get it open?

Re: Jammed Seat

Slide a screwdriver or credit card or somthin in between the two seats where the latch is and you'll spring it open.

Thanks, Ted. I did that, then readjsted the latch onto mechanism on the back of the seat. Works fine now.
