    Hi there chaps,

    Wonder if anyone has had the same problem as me and know if it's a quick fix or more involved... Basically my passenger side lever kinda works but doesn't when letting passengers in the back.

    It does flip the seat forward as it should, but it doesn't also physically move the seat forward if that makes sense? So I have to pull the seat lever under the seat as well and push if forward using both levers if that makes sense?

    Anyone have any ideas, had a look under the seat but don't really know what im looking for. Was thinking it may be a broken cable?

    Cheers
