Adjustable seat?

Just got a 2006 Majesty from my 6'4" neighbor. I was trying to dial the seat more to my 5'8" frame. I had trouble backing out the adjusting screws and, after several hours of soaking with spray silicone lubricant, I cranked down until I heard a loud crack. Now the screws are difficult to turn and I can't tell whether they are backing out or not but they are turning. What mechanism is inside the seat that the adj. bolts screw to. Could I have broken it. I'm considering going after it with a screw gun and see if I can back them out or should I start pulling staples to see what I have done? The scoot's in good shape for it's age and only has 7.4 miles on the clock. but there are a few rust spots on the hardware, possibly some inside the seat.

Cover will not come off without removing the screws I'm having trouble with. My final solution was to use a grinder on the heads of the two top screws until they heated up, approx. 1 1/2 min., and the heads pulled right through the plastic, enabling me to remove the seat pad. Now I can do what I needed to do to the seat pad. I can use the lower two screws to stabilize seat cover and I may rig some way to tie the back down or not since the seat cover base sits nicely into the trunk cover and doesn't shift around.
