2013 Beetle passenger seat fold over mechanism doesn't allow seat to move forward, but normal seat adjuster works fine.
When you activate the seat back lever (rt shoulder) the back folds forward
but it is impossible to slide the seat base forward. if you first slide the seat
forward then actuate the seat back lever the foldover works and you can
crawl back. But if you try to slide the seat back to its former position it won't
work unless you push the seat back and it locks then you can use the
normal (below forward seat base) to slide the seat back. It seems to
release the 3 lock pins on both sides when the back lever is pulled and it
slides an inch or so but the inboard side of the mechanism gets snagged
on something, the outboard side seems to be free and unlocked.
