i have a very similar problem, though i did it to myself. while performing the requisite assendectomy, i disengaged my seat-lock cable. in the midst of said tail chop, with one indicator on, the other waiting in the box, and neither hooked up, i stupidly put the seat back on to see how it would look. latch! and now it is stuck on
whoops. anyone know a good way to "get it off?"
