Thanks for the reply,there is no button that i can see or find, i think it has some form of ratchet on it and is locked up solid.

either theres a small handle under the front or you push upwards then downon the top of the rest and it moves if not pass look for a handle or button on the rear it should be simple enough should being the right word or look for a locking lever on the ratchet part

Thanks for the help but as far as i can see there is no handle or button, trying to push the handle up or down has not worked, i have just been in touch with my local ford dealer and he say that it will need to be replaced at a cost of 275.72p, i don,t think so

Hello. I have exactly the same problem. Did you ever figure how to take the seat apart?
