take the adjust forward towards the steering wheel..this might give you some "wiggle room" if is not at a "HARD" stop....anyways once you are able to get a little motion by freeing the area of movin' it forward...pounce upright, like an annoying little kid on the back while jostling the lever....with the added clearance you'll be able to SNAP it back okay~

in review....move seat forward like you've got stubby legs to reach the pedals...jiggy-time the backside while activating the lever~...that should do it~
