Rollers stuck in channel

In my '72, the two rollers in the slider on the left side of the driver's seat are jammed near the center of the channel which can't be taken apart. Any suggestions before I use explosives?

Can you snake a tube in there and spray white lithium grease in. That got mine freed up.

I might suggest some brake cleaner.

...Wegweiser says lithium grease turns to clay shortly.

GL,

Inka'd and Ray, thanks for the suggestions. Tomorrow I'll give it another shot.

My rollers fell out. Where and how do I do I place them?

Install the slider assembly on the bottom of the seats, insert the rollers; then it's important to keep the rollers in place when you're bolting the bottom plate to the seat supports in the car body. One way is to put a piece of foam rubber, with a tab or string attached, into the channel to prevent the rollers from rolling out. Once the assembly is bolted down, remove the foam; you'll notice that once all the bolts are in, they keep the rollers from falling out.

Lastly, be patient!
