seatbacks in 1997 s500coupe
could anyone tell me what would cause these seatbacks to freeze so that they cannot be moved. an hour ago, with the engine off, the seat backs could be moved forward so that the back seat could be accessed.
now arriving home, the seat backs cannot be moved forward. by any means. this makes for an almost impossible egress.
i have tried everything. restarted the engine. driven around the block. turned off the engine. opened the doors. nada.
read the manual. can find nothing to address the existence of an emergency release. surely their must be one. if it had been an adult in the back seat, there would have been no hope of an exit.
any ideas as to what has suddenly happened here? and how to correct it?
