I was camping this weekend when I needed my tool kit.
The lock would accept key and try and turn, but it wouldn't turn either way. I can't remember which direction opens seat.
I've sprayed WD-40 in key hole, forcing key close to breaking point. I've had someone sit on seat, hit it with dead blow hammer, all to no affect.
I'm thinking my air hawk under seat might be holding cable or something???
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Thanks bugzy. I now know what I'm dealing with. I hate to drill a hole if I didn't have to. Wonder if I could pull plastic out a bit to get a screwdriver under plastic. I'm thinking a strap from airhawk worked its way under cable, so even if was to access that lever behind key hole, I would still need to clear obstruction at latch end.
Thank you so much for that video Bugzy. After looking at cable placement, I was sure that the airhawk was the culprit.
Was able to pry back of seat up enough to get a coat hanger with a hook on it, and to grab enough of airhawk to get some needle nose pliers on the edge of it, and then my hand on it. Was able to yank it out through crack. That freed the cable.
That was super nice of you to shoot that video. Made all the difference. I owe you a drink.
