Default 2010 Q5 folding middle rear seat?

Just curious if anyone else has encountered this problem. Searched around and couldn't find an answer.

I'm wondering if anyone has tried to fold down the middle rear seat in their Q5. It appears to be separate and has a little button to push and release a latch. The latch is visible but upon pushing the button nothing happens...

Any help is appreciated.

It is not automatic when you press the button, You must by hand fold down the backrest down. Read the owner's manual

That is what I was doing. I have consulted the owner's manual in the past and did again after your reply and I am no further ahead.

All it instructs me to do is to push the button and fold the seat down.

That's exactly what I do in mine...push the button, pull the middle down.

Have you tried putting the other side (the third) down first? The button is near the headrest if I recall.

The button is by the head rest.

Tried many different configurations to see if any do the trick. No luck.

Check it out!

See if yours works.

In my research it appears as if some Q5's don't have this feature, judging by pictures. And there's very little written on the feature.

If your rear seats look like this then you have the possibility of overlapping of the central part rear seat

My MY14 Q5 2.0T has the 3-way folding rear seat. Which models have only 60-40?

My 2013 has the feature and I just discovered it from reading this thread. Thanks.

And I enjoy reading the owners manual, and just never came across it!!

European models that don't have Rear Bench Plus installed. There's several levels of rear bench, and while our base includes the highest tier, you don't have to get it elsewhere (save some money if you're not interested in all the functionality you could get).

Not everywhere, depending on market and trim levels
There are only two models: the base and rear bench seat plus (surcharge for rear bench seat plus cca 200Eur)

Actually, its not 40/20/40, its 60/20/40. You can't fold down the 40 portion behind the driver side without folding the center 20 as well.

Depends on how you look at it, you can fold down behind the front passenger 40 and 20 in the middle, then there is are 40 behind the driver.
In this case, is 40/20/40
