Question Getting the back seat to fold down...

So I cannot figure out how to get my back seat to fold down. I see the push button on the top of the seats with the button. However the button is extremely hard to push. I have used a plastic pry tool to push the button all the way down and the seat does still not come down. Am I missing somethign here?

do you have an owners manual? The button you are looking at and trying to push is only there to let you know it isn't properly closed, it has a red base and is very noticable in your rearview mirror.

YES you can, in between seat back and seat, right in the center... if you feel around (where the center console is) there is a RED nylon strip... pull it and the seat folds from inside the car, otherwise the trunk is the way to go...
