figured out what this seat lever does

LOL 2 months I have been messing with the lever on the side of the seat. last week I found out that it does not pull up, I have been pulling in it for 2 months. last week I found out it pushes it down, but still nothing was moving or anything.
got out of work today, started the car and adjusted the seat as always. and I decided to mess with the lever again and still nothing. so one last try I pushed it down and started to use my body to move and shift around I push back with my feet on the fire wall and there it went. the whole seat reclines!! before my seat was level the door sil, now it drops so low that my chin is level with the top of the door panel and I can not see any of the hood LOL..

It didn't take me long to figure out what it did. I guess I'm heavy enough to make it go down just sitting on it. Now that you have discovered it you will appreciate it on cold days! It'll drop you down out of the wind and it is *much* warmer down low.
