Passenger Seat tracks. Interstate 2004

I removed the passenger seat to replace the Lifeline AGM 12V battery. It was necessary to unbolt the seat tracks. Thereby lifting the seat off to enjoy full access to the battery.
I had to push the outside track rearward to complete the removal. Now the new battery is installed. Time to bolt the passenger seat into place. Big issue. The outside appears to be stuck. Unable to move it forward to match the inner track. Which is in the proper position to install the seat.
ANY IDEAS

Are you sure there is enough height now to move it forward?

I remember our first battery replacement, and lifts having to be created to get the seat hardware above the battery.

In the T1Ns, you just remove the passenger seat cushion to install a new battery.

Perhaps you can install the seat with only the stuck seat track engaged, then sit in it and use some leg muscle to get the track to move?

Yeah, be gentle with that seat cushion, though. It's just a little polyethylene mechanism that allows it to be attached and detached. I worry that if we access ours too many times, eventually we might wear it out and have to jury-rig a replacement.

If our rig were in our driveway right now, I'd take a pic for you because it wasn't initially obvious to me how to release and re-attach it.
