I have a 2000 VW Beetle, and the seat is locked all the way back and it won't move. What could be the problem, and how can I fix it?

I had to take my seats out and lube it up when that happened to mine. I had to take out the seat cuz i couldnt get the grease to the right spot with it in the car. Mine has worked fine ever since

Is it manual or electric? Could be the cable or an electrical issue
