Default Rear seat fold down/removal

There is a large handle behind my rear seat that looks like you pull it to release the seat so it can fold into the back of the front seats for more room in the back of the truck. I am buying a large rolling 2 piece tool box and need to the extra room in the back or I will have to rent a trailer.

I have done a few searches and they all come up with the newer blazers. When I pull this handle I hear something sound like it is releasing but the seat still won't move. I don't want to exert too much pressure until I know for sure that I am doing the right thing. Any help or suggestions?

When I get a chance I will post a pic of it

Okay here are some pictures of the handle and the seats in case you aren't sure which one I am talking about.

There should be a lever on the side of the seat which makes the top half fold down. Once that is down I believe you pull up on the back handle, it will come up so you can use force, and I think once it is up you can see where and how it is mounted to the floor

oisinirish is an unknown quantity at this point

1. Fold the seat back forward by pressing the lever on the passenger side of the rear bench.

2. Pull handle in center behind bench and roll entire bench to front.

3. Remove, 1 or 2 bolts don't remember, that hold arm that locks the seat in the "rolled forward" posistion. Mounted to floor near wheel well and spare and to bench to keep it from rolling backwards.

4. A little extra wiggle and yank and out she comes.
