The slideable clip is on pretty tight, as I've just dismantled one. Plus I can see how you would access it. I'd have a chat with your local Honda dealer, they might know a fix, they've bound to have come across the problem in the past.
Turns out the seat is not fixed to the flipper mechanism ? The nuts are missing ,Previous owner bodge? . so I was able to lift the lock end of the seat up a little .i can just see the lock cable is not fixed to the catch , just need to find a way of tripping the catch?
