When I had a VW Jetta, the same thing happened to me.  It turns out that 
you can fold the rear seat armrest down, go through the fabric behind it 
and undo the screws holding the latch in place.  The VW shop had a #2 
Phillips driver taped to a long stick for just this task :-)

(and duct tape on the backside of the fabric slit was a pretty decent 
repair, considering it was my commute beater)
