I suspect your 2019 Broadway must be different to our 2014 Broadway since we have no problem swivelling the seats. It is necessary to push / pull the seats as far forward as they will go- ie towards the steering wheel- and then they swivel very smoothly with nothing to catch on. I find leaning down to release the little red locking lever under the seat is easier if done from outside but I can do it from inside and my OH, with longer arms, always does it from inside.
 Yep, I have recently discovered that the job becomes a whole lot easier from outside - bit of a pain if its slashing down with rain, but overall a lot easier.

I have commented earlier that I have to push the steering wheel as far forward as it will go to rotate the seat.  Others have not found this necessary.  As I am tall my seat is always in its lowest position.  I don’t know if raising it will make any difference.

No help with the handbrake problem but a truck I drove years ago had a handbrake that ratcheted on. It took about six pulls to fully lock the brakes. The lever then dropped to the floor. You had to push it down to release it. I think this was called a neat brake not a fly off brake.
A Hillman Imp I rallied had a fly off handbrake. To release it you pulled it up and let go without pressing the button. It was meant for handbrake turns using the handbrake to lock the rear wheels. To lock the handbrake you pulled it up and pressed the button. 
It caused a few hairy moments when my mate borrowed my car. He brought it back saying the handbrake didn’t work and he nearly rolled back into a car behind him at traffic lights.
