E500 Folding Rear Seat

Does anyone know what it takes to adjust the power front seats back after they automatically move forward (to some mystery predetermined
position) when the levers in the trunk are pulled to release the seat backs?
I did it once, but can't remember how to get it to cooperate now and can't fit behind the wheel when they're down! The owners manual was useless.
Thanks, Greg
