If you start tipping the back up straight before the bottom moves on the rails then it won't move. It's a bit of a pain but like the other poster said, you get the hang of it. :confused:
What to watch out for is don't force the back up if it doesn't want to go at any time. This can snap a piece of plastic in the mechanism and then you'll find the seat won't slide frorward when you tip it any more. According to my mate it happens a lot and it costs a fortune to fix at Audi as the seats are bonded together at places. Bit of a cheek as it's a design fault. I've done it to my passenger seat :mad: and trying to work out how I can fix it myself...
