Back seat has come out :/

Hi, I have a 62 reg punto twinair..

I've noticed that after folding the seats down and putting them back, the drivers side rear seat had completely come out, as in it's come out of it's socket so the seat is not connected properly and I can remove it from the car!

Anyone know how to put it back? I can't seem to 'pop' it back in the socket and don't want to force it

Doesn't seem right at all. You must still be under warranty, if your scared about forcing it and breaking it maybe take it back to the dealer
