1999 VW Bug (Beetle) Do front seats fold down so people can get into the backseat??


Asked by Jul 30, 2014 at 07:35 AM about the 1999 Volkswagen Beetle

Question type: General

Just bought a 1999 bug, I cannot for the life of me figure out to fold down the front seats so someone can easily get into the back.
I have googled this and apparently I'm the only with this problem so it must be user error! LOL

Do you have an owners maual? You can recline the seatback to get into the rear seats. It's not that intuitive as I can remember having an issue with one in the past.

there is a seat release- people getting in the back should get in the passenger side- when the seat is released, it folds forward AND slides up- is yours broken?
