Angry Help! Rear seat won't flip!

So I was helping my BF today, and went to flip the rear seats forward. No problem on the passenger side. However, when you pull the lever/release on the rear seat on the driver's side, nothing happens. It's not releasing, and doesn't even feel like it's connected (no tension like on the passenger side). It's really quite annoying, since the car only has 8,900 miles on it.

Can anyone suggest how to get it to release, so I can flip/remove it? I assume it'll be covered under warranty, but I can't get it in the dealer until next week, and we have more moving to do!

I don't know if this will help but it wont hurt. Get someone to sit on the seat and bounce up and down once or twice. Hopefully you will actuate the mechanism. Pull the lever and see what happens.

Nothing is stuck under the seat, like a rag or a towel, is there?
I wish the best of luck to you.

Apparently I wasn't bouncing hard enough. My 110 pounds wasn't enough. The bf did it, and it worked. One of the flip up levers to remove the seat entirely was partially lifted, keeping the seat from going completely down. Fixed now, thanks for the advice!
