The belt pulls out with no effort. It comes out two or three inches.

Got the answer. In case somebody else should ask, here it is.

Take a flashlight and look down into the square recess where the two seat belt locks come up through the backseat. Besides the straps you will see two pieces of metal, one in "J" shaped and inside of the "J" you will see another piece right in the middle. Take a screw drive and press down on the one that's inside of the "J" while you are pulling up on the strap. The seats will lift out. That's it, you just will have to do that each time.

The assembly is one piece. So if the lever is broke you will want to visit you nearest weld shop and they can grind the piece down and weld it back, this will be alot cheaper that replcaeing the whole assembly. They will use a screw driver or other tool to release lever that hold seat down. If you want to release it your self you will have to use a screw driver or channel locks to release lever as the strap and lever was used for leverage to release the knotch.Use other seat to for reference. I sent this but it didnt go through, so I will send it again any way. You dont have to accept at all. Sorry we we playing tag.
