The "Magic Seat" ??

Well, I'm back in the pickle barrel again. If somehow the Magic Seat gets dropped into the well without the pull strap visible after the drop, just how in the billy-hell do you get the blasted thing up and out of the well again! We've tried just pulling up on the plastic finger handle: no dice. We've tried heaving from both sides of the seat back: no dice. It comes up a little, then hangs up on something. It seems the actual seatback at the bottom of the package is catching on something. What?

I mean, guys, two new transmissions, a second car, and now back 20 miles to a dealer to pull up a seat? I'm beginning to feel like a total idiot. Am I?

Minor technicality-

The anchors on the sill of the magic seat well are not the LATCH anchors. They are the top-tether anchors. Top-tethers can (and should) be used with most newer carseats, even those not using LATCH.

The LATCH anchors are the two that are located in the seat bight/crack of the second row captain's chairs of the 2001 model.
