I thought mine were stuck for good, but I pulled the release lever and just started violently trying to slide foreward and backward in the seat. At first I didn't think it was moving at all, but it must have been just a little, because it slowly started moving a little more and more and very quickly started moving the whole way.

Liquid Wrench, PBBlaster, WD40, they are all your friends when the sliders start to jam up. First soak the sliders down, then make sure the release mechanism is completely releasing the teeth on both slides. Then use a large rubber mallot on the ends of the sliders (or, violently shake the seats as told above) to get them moving.

Sand and grunge (technical term...) can seem to weld them in place. just clean them up. There is nothing really complicated about them.

Just remember the teeth!
The lever is welded to one side of the teeth, there is a thin rod (wire) running to the other slide to release the other set of teeth. If the rod (wire) is jacked, snapped or missing then the other side does not know to release...

Just did mine. Took them out blasted WD40 in the tracks and in the tube for the lever. Soaked for an hour or so. Banged on the ends with rubber mallet. Got them moving good. Then cleaned with brake cleaner. Wipe down with acetone or thinner. Brush off the rust and grunge. Wipe down again. Spray a fresh coat of black paint. Put some grease on the tracks move back and forth to spread the grease and re-mount. Good as new.

Its only 4 bolts to take them out...if u do and get them loose and decide to paint them. Put grease liberally all over the track thru the lock slots. Do it before u paint it so that the paint does't lock them up after u have them clear and clean with the brake cleaner. Grease will be painted and can be wiped off easily. That's if u take them out.
While in they can be brake cleaned/lubed to break them loose. If they seem sticky again repeat often.
Take them out when u can tho.
Did mine both ways...like it better when out.
Put never seize in the 4 bolt holes to make next time better.
