Lube seat rails - How?

Driver's seat on my '95 D90 will hardly budge. Nothing in owner's manual or the D90 shop manual found that helps. So how can I fix this problem? (Need to move the seat ALL the way forward so my wife can learn how to drive it should the need arise.) Looked it over and I don't see an obvious solution.
Thanks for any help.
Vic

Try taking a square and verify that they are parallel to one another. Things can move. I'm sure you've try some kind of schlickem?

Never mind, got it rollin' again. Maybe just accumulated crud that made it difficult. Just forced it free and moved it back and forth a few times and it's pretty tame right now. Wife'll be able to move it herself whereas before I couldn't even do it.

And thanks, Mason. Didn't think about that, making sure it was squared up, but did shoot a little spray lube in there - for what it was worth.

If the truck is properly used it should be clogged up with mud. If not it's Coke, french fries and goldfish crackers stuck in the tracks. Spray silicon is your best bet to keep them moving.

Lithium grease or better yet wurth hs2000 is good to keep them free and rust free.
