Ok, this is an easy one. All you need to do is reach behind the bench part of your seat, and there will be a strap handle tucked away in there. once you find the strap, pull it up, and lift your seat and hinge it up to your front seats. once you do that you can drop the backs flat on the floor.
good luck

Rear seat jammed release lever does not clear


Is this a fold-down rear seat? Is it jammed the the folded or open position? If folded, try putting some weight and pressure on the seat back while trying the release lever (having an 8-year old bounce on it would probably work well :-}). If it's jammed in the open position, have the same "assistant" bounce back and forth against the seat back while you attempt the release lever. If no 8-year old is readily available, have your spouse/significant other, friend (or enemy) perform the same actions as would the child. The latch may simply need some "persuasion". Good luck.

Rear seat belt is stuck in recline position. I recline the rear seat to make room and I can not raise the seat back up. The seat belt is not allowing the seat to raise


The problem:
The set belt stop has been lost so the seat belt retracts too far when the seat is laid flat. When laid flat the release mechanism lock as it should when not level. So the seat cannot be raised up as the belt is too tight and locked.
The Solution:
1) Push the two little clips to release and remove the headrests.
Pull the grey lever on the right of the seat base, lift seat base up and forward toward the front seat..
2) See two red capped leversat the back of the two seat hinges and lever them to the upward position, this releases the seat.
Rock the very heavy seat unit upwards and lift complete unit upwards.
3) Take it out of the car and turn 180% so that the back of the seat and base are in the upward position and the seat belt will pull out as it should
4) Replace the missing belt locking stop (I used a tie pin permanently fixed using super glue).
5) Fold seat back down and test then either re-fit seat unit or leave out to decrease fuel consumption.. 2_5_2014_8_03_56_pm.jpg 5f6d2b58-2927-4184-9c82-d111e3a9591a.jpg e9f641fc-5fbc-4c21-a371-ff371d942b1a.jpg a357ac71-d6ed-4dc7-999c-04367d3d6e72.jpg

How to remove the 3rd seat on Yukon 2007


  • Open the rear lift gate on the Yukon. You need to have access to the seat controls to remove it from the vehicle.
  • Lift the release lever located near the bottom of the back side of the seat. Fold the seat-back forward and lay it flat.
  • Locate the carrying handle at the base of the seat in the rear. Grasp the handle and pull it toward the rear of the vehicle to release the seat from the floor latch.
  • Roll the seat backward along the track built into the floor of the vehicle. The track will guide the wheels so that you can roll the seat completely out of the rear of the vehicle

    How do i remove the front seats of a 1998 Pontiac Grand Prix?


    On W-Body vehicles, the front seats are secured to the floorpan by two front hook attachments and two rear bolts installed to nuts welded to the floorpan.
    The manually operated two-way front adjusters provides only fore and aft movement of the seat. When the seat adjuster handle located on the front seat is pulled up, the seat adjusters unlock, permitting travel of the seat. When the seat is in the desired position and the seat adjuster handle is released, the seat locks in place.
    A power operated six-way seat adjuster is available. The adjusters are activated by three 12 volt, reversible, permanent magnet motors with a built-in circuit breaker. The motors are energized by a switch bolted on the seat side panel.
    The three motors drive the front seat and rear vertical actuators and a horizontal actuator. When the adjusters reach the limit of travel, torque is absorbed through the rubber mounted grommets located between the motor and the support. An overload relay is provided in the circuit and will open should excessive stall be applied.
    The optional 60/40 split bench front seats have seat back head restraints on the driver's and passenger's seat back. The head restraints are designed so they cannot be removed from the seat back without first inserting a small rounded tool inside the head restraint support tube to release the locking tab. The 60/40 split bench seat is equipped with a reclining mechanism on both the driver's and passenger's side. The recliner lever is located on the outboard side of the spring cushion. When the lever is pulled upward, the spring loaded dual linear reclining unit located in the cushion frame is released, allowing the seat back to be pushed rearward or allowing the spring loaded reclining unit to bring the seat back forward.
    Bucket seats are equipped with manual reclining mechanisms. An optional six-way power seat adjuster is available. Some bucket seats are equipped with inertia seat back locks. This system allows the seat back to fold forward without requiring the occupant to release a locking lever or access to the rear seat area. During a sudden stop or deceleration, or if the front of the vehicle is nose down, the inertia system of the seat back lock will engage, holding the seat back in its rest position. A release lever is provided to allow manual release of the seat back lock when the vehicle is in the nose down position. The release lever is located at the lower rear outboard corner of the seat back.
    Some W-Body vehicles (notably Pontiac coupes) have passenger front seats equipped with an E-Z Entry device. This is actuated, in an unoccupied seat, by completely folding the seat back forward disengaging the adjuster, and sliding the front seat forward to gain access to the rear seat area. To return the seat to its normal position, return the seat back to its rest position, and slide the entire seat rearward, engaging the adjuster.
    W-Body rear seats are available in several styles including a rear seat with an integral child restraint device.

    Driver side second row seat will not fold down. When pulling the release catch the seat does not release . I can not fold the seat flat to carry a large load in the rear of the vehicle.


    I had the same problem. The dealer wanted $400 to replace the latch. I didn't wnat to pay that much so I looked at it and found that the release strap was twisted and jammed in the mechanism. Here's how I fixed it.

    I removed the screw from the lever and removed the lever. I pulled apart the plastic housing. It does not come apart all the way but enough to work on it. Pull the release strap that comes out of the back and pull it clear of the mechanism and straighten it out. slip the lever back on and the seat should fold. Fold it up all the way to make it easier to reassemble. Pull the lever back off and slip the release strap back into the slot and make sure it is not twisted or kinked. Snap the housing back together, put the lever back on, and screw it in. Test it and it should work fine. Hope this helps,

    Rear seat won't come back up


    I had the same thing happen! Pushed all the way down the rear back locks, to unlock push the lever in and press DOWN on the seat to release the lock.
    I had to check my manual, I tried to lift it 'case it made sense but nope - you have to press down while pushing the lever.
