Question about 2002 Honda Civic
How do I fold the rear seat - just bought car second hand and cant work out how to fold the seats right up. No User Manual!
I had the same problem on my '03. The seats would not fold down using the latch release as I had always done. So I tried a combination of pulling up on the side latch AND the top latch and the seat folded down. It really doesn't FIX the problem but circumvents offending defective part. I will use this method until it doesn't work then I might shell out the $$$$$ to the dealer.

this would mean eather the motor is froze up or it needs to be replaced you will need to remove the seat then, the motor, then you can hook back up the motor and see if it works if you get no sign of it working you will need to replace it

Bearings are pressed into the hubs...much easier, faster and economical (if you don't have a press) to replace the complete bearing/hub assembly, no pressing is needed, since bearings are already pressed into the new hubs. Cost..aprox, 60 buxs each.
Here are the steps for the rear replacement...
Loosen the lug nuts on a rear wheel. 2) Chock the wheels and jack the rear of the car on the side with the lug nuts that you just loosened. 3) Remove the wheel by removing the lug nuts. 4) Pry open the dust cap covering the center of the axle/spindle. A small screwdriver tapped into the space between the hub and dust cap will work well for this. 5) With the dust cap now removed, use a thin center punch to straighten the little dent in the rim of the spindle nut so that you will be able to turn it freely in the next step. 6) Use a 32mm socket and a large breaker-bar to loosen the spindle nut. Unscrew the nut all the way and place it in a clean, safe area. 7) You should now be able to slide the hub/bearing assembly from the shaft. 8) Installation is the reverse of removal. Use plenty of high-temperature wheel bearing grease on all surfaces before you mount the replacement hub assembly.
IMPORTANT: Torque the spindle nut to 134 ft/lbs....(per manual specs)
When reinstalling the dust caps, tap them gently into place to avoid denting them...Install wheels, jack her down and pat yourself on the back...job complete.
Good luck..hope this will fixya up...please take time to leave me a fixya rateing...

after spending an hour or so, with your hands, arms, fingers and lower back aching....you will kick yourself if the solution is just THIS easy. Trust me, we speak from experience!!
Many times, the rear seat in the van is folded and down in the well compartment,and for the life of you, it wont come up. The problem, you may think is because, like us, you were a dope and let the strap fall to the bottom and you can't leverage it up. or maybe you spent an hour online praying and searching for a solution; only to find NOTHING! ha. well, we thought about setting up a fee for this, but, na, we thought it would be nicer to just list the easy solution for FREE!
ok, here it is....many times what you think is folded and down....is NOT REALLY fully down. if it didnt CLICK down, it aint down. which means its "ALMOST" down. so dont beat yourself pulling UP on it if its not YET DOWN!
solution: climb in and onto the 'down' third seat, and jump on the mother F*&^^R, and you will hear a soft 'click'.
NOW its "DOWN".
all you have to do is simply, effortlessly (strap or NO strap) lift that damn third seat up.
Yes, its that easy.
AND....it may just save your MARRIAGE!
shucks maam, thanks is all i need! :)
