It is tight when the seat is up but slack when folded down. It is not working

If the button will not release it, try holding the buckle and rap on the side of the it to see if whatever is lodged in there moves around and frees up enough to allow the button to release, other than that, replacement is all I can see for this issue.

No, you may need to unbolt the unit to get it freed up.
