2015 116 travelliner

New to me 2015 116 travelliner .

I want to move the rear seats back a little so i can get a temporary table in for when im stationary. I see the rear seats front fixing (hook at the bottom front) fit and lock on the rear of the fixing rail giving enough room but the seats back does come up as the rear fixing (hook at the bottom rear) is not extended enough to release the mechanism for the seat back tom come up. I was wondering if under the floor carpet there is a enough of a recess to allow this to fully extend even if just for a temp period when we are stationary for a time. If so i could cut a hole in the carpet and under lay to allow this to happen. I would look to finish this off nice though.

Has anyone got any experience of this? Anyone had their floor up to see the actual van floor? Any pics?

Thanks in advance.
