No need to lube it, the problem is that the excess seat back vinyl/leather gets bunched up in the lower mechanism binding it so the release lever is hard to move. Take the seatback off and do some trimming around the mechanism and it will be better than new.

I took mine off, there was no excess leather in the way. Mine isn't hard to move, mine is frozen solid in place. It doesn't move at all. It's like it's welded in place. I tried manually pulling on the 2 cables and there is zero movement in mine. Anyone else have this problem?

mine are always hard to disengage I just thought it was the awkward angle of my arm pulling on the lever.

Might be two different issues, my was the bunched up material interfering with the bottom latch. Either way the back has to come off to access the latch to also put penetrating oil on the frozen latch.

Have tried moving the seats all of the way forward? How about having someone sit in the seat, push back on the seat, then pull the latch. This solved some of the older cars i owned. The the bottom latch would get wedged.

Maybe you guys have been doing "something" in that passenger seat to put added stress on the latch rendering it inoperable.
If so, congratulations, you studs. (y)
