If you can get to the wires after the burned switch or pull it out and use a long jumper wire from the battery or bypass the switch with a shorter jumper wire and power up the motor that moves the seat back to the sitting position so you can reach those bolts. Depending on the seat options you have a separate motor for reclining.
