    Volvobaby,
    You must fold the seat bottom toward the rear of the car first, Then depress the lever at the top of the seat so you can fold the seat down. Let me know if that works, sometimes the mechanism that latches the seat sticks when you depress the lever.

    I got the back of the seat about 1/2 way down, the bottom of the seat (where you sit) doesn't budge. There is a lever in the center of the bottom but that doesn't do anything either.

    I thought the seat bottom didn't have a latch? Make sure the seat back is all the way in the upright position, then try to fold the seat bottom toward you.
