Can’t tell anything by your pdf files you sent. Per your suggestions I have tried to see if I could see anything with a flashlight, sprayed all the mechanism with WD40 and reinstalled seat in place. Still unable to pull seat back up to seating position. It pulls up about 3” but will not unlock from folded position. The right seat pulls up fine but the left seat will not. What now?

next will be removing the whole seat off the floor now unfortunately, the folding mechanism obviously is jammed or gears broke
