    On the convertible, there is a lock cylinder on the top of the left end of the seat. Use the ignition key on it to unlock the seat before trying to move it. I imagine this is so one can park the car with the top lowered and still have secure storage in the trunk.

    Yikes,
    I found the keyhole, it turns. It seems like the drivers or keyhole side will move forward, but no action on the passenger side.

    I don't want to force it, but it is stopping me from repairing the top hydraulics.

    Help!!

    If it's like my 97 vert, the procedure is this:

    Insert key in slot

    Turn about 1/4 to right. That releases the left side.

    While turning a bit more to the right, PUSH the right side of the seat BACK to release the tension on the latch. Don't PULL the seat until it releases.

    It's takes a bit of finagling, just DON'T force it. You'll feel good when it opens...
