Seat Bracket siezed up and not moving!! any ideas?

the seat on passenger side of my 97 is supposed to tilt forward to give access to the rear seat..... but the tilting mechanism is siezed up.....the seat reclines and slide forward and backwards, but does not tilt!!!

i've tried WD-40, Kroil, a mallet! kicking it from the back seat......that suckker will not budge!

and to answer the obvious, yes i know how the seat is supposed to work since this is my 2nd 97 jeep. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

any ideas????

my pass side seat will go forward pretty easy but to get it back is a pain, it will go maybe a 1/4th of the way back but you have to have it all the way forward and pull the lever at the back of the seat. I'd try a bunch of goofy things and posistions, and if it isn't in an odd posisition Like completely down (maybe messing around in the jeep caused it to happen) i'd just leave it there.
