Q: Drivers Seat is Stuck on 1996 Toyota Corolla

You need to get underneath the seat and lubricate the adjuster bracket with spray penetrating oil and work it loose. You may need to remove the seat from the bracket, that's probably the best approach. then grease the track so it won't get stuck again. you'll have to inspect the mechanism to be sure that something isn't broken, too.
