Angry Problem-removing rear nut from front seats

Hey guys, is there a special key, wrench or socket to remove the rear nut from the front seats because i'm having a hell of a time trying to get the socket to fit in the rear track of the front seat- this a 4 door sedan???

Your help is appreciated,
Thanks,

Move the seat all the way forward?
A socket fit in mine without any trouble.

move seat forward, raise seat all the way up... makes it stupid easy if you understand how your seats work.
