Second opinion] I have a 2015 CLS 220 4 seater but it does not have a folding seat rear which I would find really useful.Similar aged cars have this facility. I have found the upper catches but this will only allow a 15-20 degree tilt. Does this mean I should invest in a chainsaw

Hi Bill, my name is***** retrofit is possible but you will be hard-pressed to find a donor car with the through-loading feature in the same upholstery. Purchasing the pieces new from Mercedes would be very costly. I did a search on eBay and did not find any rear seats available with the folding option. I would check the local salvage yards and ask them to run a locate on some rear seats. The salvage yards have access to a large database of cars. You might get lucky and locate something. I'd also keep an eye on eBay. As the cars get older you tend to see salvage parts show up more and more.

Let me know if you have any questions.

On removal of the rear seats via Lou's advice I have managed to carry out my own mods to give this facility.
As it is only an occasional requirement it will suit my needs.
