It is rusted to the latch. soak the latch under the seat with wd-40 and wait a day. then try again. if it doesn't work then use a screw driver to pry open the seized latch.

SOURCE: how to fold down back seat

There should be a loop between the seat and backrest, pull that and the seat will pull toward the front seats. After that, pull the lever located at the outside of the backrest. This lever is on the outside of the seat by the door-side of the seat. Pull that up and allow the backrest will fold down and the headrest will pivot back and your seat is folded down.

SOURCE: center rear seat does not have a shoulder/lap seat belt

You should be able to go to the dealer and buy the center lap belts and can install them without having to by the seat just call your loacal dealer they can tell you how much thy are, less expensive than the seat.

Will back seat come down


As far as I can tell, the only part that comes down is the little door in the middle of the backseat. Your key goes in there and unlocks it and you can put it up or down depending if you are hauling anything. it is available when you pull down the strap that gives you the cup holders and center console in the backseat.

Back seat wont come down... I just purchased a 96 chevy cavlier and I am replacing the rear deck carpet/cover. I need to pull the rear seat down but it has no pull down strap in the upper center spot...


so there was a strap there but now its gone? Are you sure it will pull down? you will need to lift up the bottom of the seat and pull it out, then see if the back pivots down, or if you need to unbolt it (2 bolts) then lift up on the back to disengage it from the back support.

I searched the owner's manual and there was no mention of folding the rear seats down. If you don't have a manual, you can get one here: http://www.extendedgmwarranty.com/owners-manual/buick/1999-Buick-Century.pdf

You can remove the seats following the instructions below from autozone.com.

Driver side 2nd row seat is stuck in my 2002 kia sedona


I have had a similar problem. I solved it by keping the seat back raised, get someone to rock the seat back violently while you pull on the balck strap and try and remove the seat. This may not happen 1st time if not spray WD40, and lots of it all over the seat linkages and locking mechanism under the seat.

When you get the seat out turn it upside down and spray with WD40, do this with all the other emovable seats.

Hai i would like to know how to fold the back car seat to increase cargo space in hyundai santa fe 2003


The rear seats have a pull strap located between the bottom cushion and the backrest of the rear seats used to disengage a lock to lift up the bottom cushion. The pull straps will only stick out an inch or so, or they might have fallen down between the seats and then you wont see them. Before you can lower the backrest of the rear seats, the bottom cushions have to be lifted up and forward out of the way so that the backrest may lie down flat. If your pull straps are not visible between the bottom cushion and the backrest, you may have to stick your hand between the cushions and feel for the straps. Once you find the straps, pull upward on the while lifting on the bottom cushion where the pull strap is located and the seat should tilt forward. Once you have manged to do this, the lever for the backrest is located on the top of the backrest. Just slide the lever and tilt the backrest to the desired position.

I want to make my 1999 Mercury Villager Sport into a cargo loader, with just the front seats kept and the rest of the back empty. How do I remove the other 3 seats? So far, I can't get any of them to budge...


the middle seats come out easily. There are 2 handles you have to lift up on each of the bucket seats, they are in the front of the seat down by the seat tracks. After you lift them, tilt the seat upward in the front and rotate them backward. Then lift out of the hooks. Each seat is held down by 4 hoks.

The 3rd row seat is not designed to come out xcept by a technician. It does slide forward all the way up to the front seat. It has a sliding seat track.
First, lift the T handle under the seat cushion on the left front side of the seat. This will allow you to lift the seat bottom up all the way to lcok in the full up position.
Then, lift the lever on the same side of the seat and slide the seat forward. It will stop in 4 places.
Rear -Rear
6 inches forward of that.
another two ft to the second row seating position
full frward against the front seats.

Pleae rate as fixya if this helps.

Kia Sedona seat stuck


Got it, with the help and eyes of my wife. The rear latch releases as the seat back is lowered. This release is ALMOST seat back down (about 3 inches above the seat bottom). As the seat back lowers, apply constant lift on the rear latch, and it will release as the seat back lowers. Hard-won knowledge - I think I invented some bad words in the process.
