Manually adjusting electric seats (W126)

Is it possible to manually move these electric seats backwards or forwards? My mom took my car last night and moved the seat all the way forwards, now it won't go back.
I'm 6'3" and just drove my little brother to school with the seat all the way forward. I'm not driving anywhere else. Too painful and too dangerous.
I've taken the seat out of the car, but I still can't see any way to manually move it back in the bracket.

You can't. Looks like the seat controls are shot.

for a start pull the motor out that controls F&B plug it in to it's proper conection and run the switch. if it runs then I'll bet it's just jammed in the foward position .You might try striking the rails rearward with a block of wood and a heavy hammer.........

The seat moves up/down, just not back/forward. I'll try beating it around the body with a rubber mallet.

There are two steel rollers with an O ring around it's center on each bottom rail somtimes these rollers get jammed when the seat is moved to far forward , spray the bottom rails with WD before you smack them ,you should be able to tilt the seat half in the car with the electric connected and the tap the top rail that moves while a friend hits the back button, don't hold the button down or you'll blow a fuse. (might be a good idea to check that fuse before you start)........
