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?

Here's another suggestion - I unbolted and removed the LATCH anchor that was inside the rear well on the center (bumper side of the inside well). I don't use the LATCH system, and it was beginning to chafe the leather on the back of my 3rd row seat whenever I dropped it into the well.
