Hello, these seats can be tricky. There is a release cable internally. the seat must be fully seated in order for this cable to release, unless the cable broke. If you can maneuver the seat, remove it, and make sure the latches are all released. Try to reinstall the seat, and make sure there is nothing restricting the latches. then try again to fold the seat up. If you cannot get it, you may have to go to the dealer, leave the seat, and have them repair it. Good luck...Gary
