Default How to fold rear seats

I see how to fold the rear passenger seat, but how do you fold the rear driver side seat?

Just folding backrest down? Just like passenger side, pull the latch, there is 1 latch for each side, maybe yours got broken?

There is no latch on that side as there is on the passenger rear side. Is that one latch supposed to release both? Ive seen other 2003 9-3 and ive only seen one latch. Am I wrong?

WELL, i can honestly say i feel like an idiot!! WOW! dont know how I missed that one. I thought there was another latch like the one above the headrest of the rear passenger seat, but I just couldnt find it. Thank you, not I can spray my rear deck and speaker covers to the color I want.

the backrest release you accessed from inside the car by removing the plastic cover is an emergency release,for any reason the trunk lid won't unlock with the remote or switch,this catch allows you still to access the trunk by releasing one side backrest.

Ive got an 04 arc convertible. No tabs to release the seat on mine. Am I right in my thinking that because its a convertible the back seat wont fold down or does the rear seat fold down different on a convertible?
