Rear Seats in B5.5 sedan, how do they fold down?
« on: July 27, 2014, 10:11:44 pm »
Hey guys, long time lurker first time poster etc.

Anyway I've had my B5.5 V6 4MOTION for about six months now and am absolutely loving it, but I have come across one rather annoying issue.

My car failed a warrant because of not having a center rear belt visible, so I set about trying to find it today.  I'm pretty sure it's under the lower seat cushion all tucked away, but I also realized that the rear seat doesn't seem to have any sort of latch to fold the rear backrest down.  This could potentially become very annoying down the track.

So I guess my question is, where on earth do I find said latch?  I've looked all over.  Or does my backrest just not fold down at all full stop?

Base of the seat is usually very easy to remove. Usually works by pulling up or pushing forward or a combination. I remember doing it on my B5. Could be worth a try?

Is your a sedan or wagon?
