2005 CLK Drivers seat will not tilt forward

Hi,

for some unknown reason, my front seat decided it doesnt want to tilt forward any more.
I can lift the lever at the top of the seat just fine - but the catch mechanism will not release - so the seat won't tilt forward.

Does anyone know:
1) How to fix this?
2) How to dismantle the lower seat coverings so I can see what is going on?

I'd guess that its cable accuated and that the cable may have come off a runner/guide... but thats a guess as I cant work out how to remove the coverings to see.

All assitance/ideas gratefully accepted.
Thanks,
Michael

This has happened to me. It is not a machanical fault.

The seat is probably too far forward. If so, it will not do the tilt/rise function in case it touches the roof liner.

So, move it back a tad, and try again.
