Question about 2002 Pontiac Montana
When putting in my rear seat back in, I thought I had successfully latched all the brackets into place. I was wrong. The back brackets latched but the front slipped out of place in the process. I tried unlatching the back, but the bar that allows that process won't move. I need to be able to get this seat out. Help is greatly appreciated.
Ok, I had similar problem on my Chevy Venture.
Step one: Lower the Back part of the seat down.
Step 2: Get a BIG flat head screw driver
Step 3: Use the screw driver to push down the Lever in the back of the Seat to unlatch the rear hooks. - You won't be able to do it by hand, not enough strength can be applied to get that rear lever to move.
Then, when you put it back in, make suure the front latches are open prior to putting the seats back in again. If they are locked, you have to open them (using the same screw driver) otherwise, you will have the same issue again.
GM Seat system for the vans sucks a$$. I've seen this problem too many times.

Thank you SO much mteplitski. We have had a seat stuck for 2 years and we were trying to solve it but had been unsuccessful. This worked like a charm!!!
