Default XV1600 seat removal

I have tried to remove the seat unsuccessfully. I removed the bolt in the rear but the front is still latched. The ignition switch has a position for seat removal but even in that position it does not unlock. It is a 2000 year with a Mustang seat. What is the trick? Do I need to use more muscle on the switch?

OK, I finally figured it out. You must keep the key depressed while lifting up on the seat.
