After 2 years I finally fixed mine. The little tiny wire that runs through the seat actually burnt and broke apart. A little solder, some hot glue and a few hours is all it takes. Instead of fighting those clips with a flat head and pliers I used 1 those C clamp ring pliers and just opened them up. While I was at it I went ahead and sewed the seam on the seat that had been coming apart since I bought the truck. Great post dude!
