Default Drivers Seat Angle

Is there a way to ease the angle of the back support on the drivers seat. Just getting too old to sit at 90°. The electric controls seem to only tilt the entire seat but do little to alleviate that angle. I need to be more obtuse than acute when I drive.

Alan, Do you not have a lever along the left side of the seat bottom? Lift that lever and try to adjust the seat back.

Unfortunately no lever just the seat belt retractor.

I just checked in the daylight and still nothing that I can see. The only lever is a L-shaped spring loaded rod that is coming from the floor centered below the front edge of the drivers seat. God only know what that might do.

Do you have a seat that looks different then the co-pilot? Maybe a commercial drivers' seat?

the front lever is the hold down for the air ride.
The back tilt control is a small black thing,mounted into the seat on the street side,looks like the lever you rotate the seat with.

I can visualize what it should be and where it should be but it's just not there. Perhaps it's a new seat, I know the PO had the front seats recovered to match the white leather with black piping on the couches. Nonetheless I'll be meeting with the PO next week so I'm sure he can shed some light on this.
