They have a problem with the seatbelt retractor getting jammed up causing the belt to jam & not let the rear seat fold back up.The easiest way to get the seat back up is to cut the seatbelt & fold up the seat.Then the rear seat needs to be disassembled to gain access to the seatbelt retractor assy which has the seat belt made on.Hopefully it's still under warranty or Ext. warranty.hope this helps

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! :)
