I have a 08 XK Commander Limited 4.7 and I have been trying to get my middle seat folded down on the 2nd row, but without sucess. When i pull on the cord nothing happens. Seems like the back of the middle seat will not move at all... Anyone have this problem. Like you said i do not want to pull on it to hard. The cord does come out some... hmmmm.. anyone have a idea what i can do next?
