push harder. All the seat belt clips out of the way? You know you still love the W123.

Thumbs up

Hold it up as high as you can to slip under the back rest, push down. Nothing to it. Lucky for you that you don't have to deal with the power recline rear like my SDL and 560 have, they're a real pain to disassemble.

Haha maybe not that aggressively but yes, just line it up, give it a good push and then sit on it (Works for me every time)

So did you find Hatties hidden stash of money under that seat?

tried that method and I removed the stack of 100's earlier. But those were not impeding the movement.

If he found a quarter in that car I'd be shocked!

You need the touch Joe, she is like a women, your hands have to move just right. Now she isn't happy your being to rough. Gently, but firmly push back and down.


I love that cars back seat, I used to make my buddy drive me around so I could enjoy it. Its the dictator seat!
