Backrest and Seat Adjustment - Help needed

I just got my first MB, a 2003 SL500. I now find the drivers seat very uncomfortable, and difficult to adjust to my liking, and have two problems:

1. The backrest - I cannot get it to go very far back from essentially upright. I read some threads here that said to lower the seat all the way and then try, but that did not work. When using the backrest control on the door, after the backrest goes back a little it then stops going back and takes the seat forward. Anyone come across this and find a way to get the backrest to go back more (in more of a reclining position)? The passenger seat seems to go much further back.

2. The two buttons on top of the driver's seat that permit access to behind the seat (i.e., they move the back rest) do not work. So I cannot get behind the seat to put in a briefcase or similar items. Is there something I can check to see why this is not working? All the other driver's seat adjustments work (except as noted in 1 above), so it seemed that perhaps this is an isolated problem that can be easily fixed.

Thanks!
