Rear seat help.

For starters..
I just bought my first ever Jeep, a 2010 Wrangler Unlimited Sport 4dr, about 5 days ago. The stock 16" wheels and tires had to go, and quick, so I picked up a set of 3000 mile old Rubicon wheels and tires for cheap off craigslist.
I go to pick them up and start folding down the rear seats for room.
Passenger side, no problem.. Drivers side.. problem.
The headrest wont fold back so the seat won't lay down.
I still manage to get all 5 wheels and tires in my Jeep, but I'm curious if this is a common problem and if there is an easy fix.
I tried the search feature, but got nothing so now I'm thinking it might not be so common.

Any help or ideas?

Not sure, I have a 2011 Unlimited and both rear seats fold down easy. You may want to bring it in to the dealer if you can't get it to work to see what they think.

--And congrats on the purchase. I've been a proud Jeep owner for way longer than you, like 3 weeks now... and I love it more everyday!

So no one has had this problem with the rear seat headrest not folding back??
I was hoping it was fairly common and there was an easy fix.
2010 JKU - Pretty stock, for now!

Hi Tommy
I'm just wondering if you ever solved this problem. I just bought a 2008 Unlimited Sahara and it has the same problem. Here's hoping. Thanks Paul
