Rear seat stuck

One of the two, on the driver's side, is stuck and won't fold down. Any ideas before I bring it to the body shop? There's nothing visibly broken, it's just stuck. The lever seems to work OK, it just doesn't trigger the release like the other one. I want it perfectly functional before I sell it.

Thanks for any tip!

Make sure the seat back isn't locked. There's a place to insert the key up near the headrest.

Awesome! A little embarassing to admit, but I just found out what that slot was for!!! I was wondering, and I didn't notice that it was at 90 degrees compared to the other one, I should've known better!

Anyway, thank you so much!

The car is now perfect, just needs the right buyer!

Just wanted to let you know that the "for sale" link in your signature is broken.
