Wave 147 passenger seat not folding, please help.

Hi everyone,
I have an 05 plate two door Alfa 147. The passenger seat no longer folds forward and the mechanism handle appears very loose when I try it.
It's a black cloth seat.
I found a thread relating showing good instructions of removing a rear seat panel, but the guys car had a leather seat which looked more modern than mine.
I'm unsure how to get into the mechanism, and how to remove the seat if that's what's needed.
Any help would be appreciated.

I think though the seat is slightly different in design the principle is the same.
If you have a look at the bottom at the back of the seat you should see the cable that operates it.
You should be able to do it without removing the seat.
You can get a kit to fix both handle and cable .
