Q: Can't Fold Front Seats Forward on 1995 Audi Cabriolet

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
Lifting up the latch on the side of the seat won't unlatch the seat-back so I can fold it forward and get into the back seat. Not a huge problem since I normally drive it alone, but....makes the back seat useless! Is this an adjustment I can fix? Or is it likely a broken part I can fix? I have no idea where to start.

Thanks for any help.

You can release the catch manually reaching behind at the door side base and feeling for the metal latch plate while simultaneously lifting or having someone lift the regular release on the seats upper side. I have been doing this for many years as I generally don't have passengers there and use the back seat mainly for luggage, shopping, etc.
