Rear seat back won't snap back into place (159 Ti Sportwagon)
I've had my sport wagon a few weeks now. Yesterday, I needed to fold the seats down to take carry some bulky materials. It's something I've done plenty of times before in my previous ti saloon, so I'm well used to how the seats fold. However, when I tried to return the smaller section back up into the seating position, the bottom part of the seat separated for the fitting that retains it to the base of the car. Now I can't get the seat back into the correct position. Has anybody had this happen?... if so, how did you fix it?
I tried for 30 mins to sort it, but couldn't figure it out. It does appear as if a plastic retainer may be missing from the fitting. I'm sensing it might be something the previous owner forgot to tell me about.
I'd appreciate any help on this - as luck would have it, the car is in for NCT (Irish MOT) tomorrow morning and it will fail if I can't sort it out this evening. Typical!
