Hi-does anyone have an owners manual for a 1994 circa W124 estate? Condition unimportant really, just need to complete book pack. Failing that, does anyone know the correct way to drop the rear seat backs? Tried the little black button but no joy..Cheers!!

OK Here goes. Open rear door on drivers side. Put hand under seat and pivot it towards the rear of the driver's seat. Next remove headrest by pushing down on the little black button alongside the chrome headrest strut at the same time as you lift the headrest up. It is often quite stiff. Put headrest in garage. You can then lower the rear seat back by just pivoting it towards the drivers seat. Then open rear door on passenger seat side. Do the same process. The reason for doing it in this order is that you should have a bar attached to the double rear passenger seat which has the load cover and dog guard that is attached to the back of the double rear seat. This just slides off towards the open rear door if you want to remove it. Generally I don't bother. If you require more room you can remove the rear seat scwabs (not sure of spelling) by lifting them by the little red toggle before you pivot the seat backs down. These cars a vast load carriers and out strip any SUV by a long way.

Hi-many thanks, and with your kind advice i've remembered eventually. Seats hadn't been moved for ages, and it's a while since I have owned one. Still could do with a handbook though!

They come up on ebay regularly. Or you should be able to order one from a Mercedes dealer. They cost around £20 that way but you would get one quickly. You could also check the US forum as there is a link to pdf files of mnanuals but I can't remember which thread it was on. Might even have been mentioned on this forum.

You MUST have keep both the rear doors open -to release the locks before the seats will move ? Teddy- (W124-220TE)

Neither on my old 280TE or my current 320TE are both doors required to be kept open. I have always folded the single seat with the rear passenger door closed.
