Backrest Lever quit working any ideas??

I own a 96' 328is and the passenger seat backrest lever that you pull up on to fold the seat quit on both sides of it, there is no resistance, and I have no clue where to start... any information would be greatly appreciated.

Mein Auto: A car.

Not sure what's going on there but my driver's power seat broke on me recently. It was cheaper to install a new seat from a wrecking yard than to fix the seat. Might want to have a good mechanic look at it first. Hope that helps.
