Moving a power seat with no power? Anybody?

So trying to get the driver seat out of my parts jeep to sell it tomorrow but it is so far back I cant get to the back bolts. Obviously from parting out and what not there is no power and missing fuses, wiring harnesses and connectors. Is there a way to move it manually?
Thanks in advance.

Re: Moving a power seat with no power? Anybody?

Found a way to do it without power. If you pull the side plastic cover and look towards the front of the frame you will find a square head fitting. With a drill and the right square bit you can move the seat no problem. See pics.

Re: Moving a power seat with no power? Anybody?

A little more info about the pics. That was the driver side seat looking at it from outside the driver side door. I pulled the plastic side cover that has the switches off to get to that point. After looking at it more I'm pretty sure you can do the same thing with the other seat adjustments. HIGHLY recommend using a cordless drill though, mine was dead so I was using a 1/4" ratchet and it took FOREVER!! It really doesn't take much force at all to move it.
