It is possible the vehicle doesn't have a set-up for this. I know the driver's side seat on my Sebring convertible doesn't fold forward, but the passenger side seat has a prominently-placed lever on the side to make it fold forward. If there is no obvious lever, perhaps it never had one. Have the seats ever been reupholstered? Perhaps the lever was broken and someone opted to upholster over it? Just guessing here.
