Hi folks,

Whilst cleaning/treating the leather at the weekend I tried to lift the rear seats up to do a proper job and found they wouldn't lift all the way. Re-read the manual again, fearing I was missing something stupid, but no - "Pull strap..lift seat.." - simple enough.

I've taken some piccies and labelled the parts/direction of travel for clarity as it looks as though the hinge has been incorrectly made - such that the moving part (
is unable to lift any higher as it comes into contact with the fixed part of the hinge (A).

Could somebody have a look at their car and let me know....any comments welcome.

Cheers.

when you pull the tab do you first lift from where the tab is..... because it is like a double hinge

pull tab - lift from tab about half inch - then pull the seat over and it then drops down into the footwell

These are pics of mine, don't know if they help much (by the way, the cable is for the winter pack - heated rear seats, so obviously ignore for yours
):

Ross/Rob,

You guys are stars!!! Thanks a million!

Just been out to the car and pull/lift/tilt - hey presto, working seats.

I love the Treg but why don't VW do more pictures in the manual - for thicko's like me


Again, many thanks.

Yep, lift the front of the seat to "unlatch" before tilting.
