Disabled Easy Entry/Exit

Took delivery of a 2009 GLK 350 and was surprised to find that the seat retract portion of the easy entry/exit feature in the power seats has been disabled. The dealer advised that this has been the case since the 2008 model year. Evidently, the USA lawyers have scared M-B into disabling the ability of the seats to retract on exit because of "dangers to children". The steering wheel still goes to the "up" position, but the seats won't move. Does anyone know of a "hack" that will re enable the seat retract portion? I'm sure this is just a software issue. I get the impression that this is an across the board change for all M-B models. My 2006 E, which I traded for the GLK, still had this feature.
