Manually moving Seat back? Help!

Is there a way to manually move the power seat back to the upright position? The motor crapped out (I believe) leaving the seat leaned waaaay back and I just want it to be back to normal somewhat. Any help would mean the world to me. Thank you!

hm, well I can hear the motor as it is, just no movement....but I see what looks like one plug that isnt attached to anything in the center underneath the seat. Gonna take some pics to see if anybody might recognize it too.

if the motor isnt working the cables correctly try to attatch the cable to a cordless drill. and use the drill as a motor to move the seat back and forth.
