Had that problem since I own the van, the seat wont move at all, I looked under with a flashlight to see if something was stuck in the railing but could not see anything, I would like to install an auxiliary battery under but can't with the seat being stuck there. would also like to eventually change both seat. Looked in the manual but there's no mention on what to do if it's stuck, I tried having someone pull/push on the seat while trying to free it but
no luck Rolling Eyes Am I going to have to cut it in pieces Twisted Evil

Finally got it unstuck, the PO must have been tall, the seat rail was jammed in the rail stop, I unjammed it by hitting from behind with rubber mallet
And thanks WY for your time
