Accessing the battery reconnect switch on V8V

Feel like an idiot. So, I hit the battery disconnect switch before storing the V8V this past winter, but I didn't move the seat up so I can easily access the reconnect switch. Now that I'm excited to start driving it again, I can't access the reconnect button (behind passenger seat), because the seat is too far back.

Are there any manual ways to move the seats without the battery reconnected so I can access the reconnect switch? Any other ideas on how I can reconnect the battery or get the seats moving?

What year is your car? I have a 2013 and I canít even find the battery disconnect switch.

If it's like the DB9 you can recline the passenger's seatback forward and then that will give you access. I think the recliner control is on the side of the seatback.

This most be an early model feature as I don't think my 2012 has this button.
