Best bet is to take to an automotive upholstery shop so they can remove the seat cover to gain access. There is a special tool to remove the "hog rings" that keep the cover in place. Most likely the cable has stretched out and will need to be replaced.

Rear back seat will not release to fold down


U knkw where ur handles at the top of the seat if u pull them and ur seat will not release
Pull the screw in the front near center of seat in the plastic cover also there is one in the rear u will want to re move
U can access the latch look at ur cable it may be streached or broken.
They r simple to replace and don't cost very much from the dealer
The rear of the seat pulls up u will see snaps on the cardboard pop them and follow the cable
I have replace several. The other side the shorter seat u will need to remove the side cover of that seat to replace that cable. Those cables cost around 30.00 each. If u have torques bits u should be able to replace them.

How to remove rear seat of 1993 ford escort


First, check to see if there are two bolts between the bottom front of the seat and the floor. one on each side. If there is, remove them, then lift the front part of the seat straight up then pull forward.
However, if this model does not have the two bolts, it is a different
method.
This is the one i believe it is.
Get in the back seat with your back against the front seat and push backwards and downwards at the same time against the front edge of the rear seat about where the passenger sits until you feel it release, then lift straight up. Then go to other side and repeat procedure.
Note. it takes a bit of strength to push the seat out of it's retainer, but thats how its done. What is happening here, to give you an idea how it works is like this: There is a fixed retainer on the floor on both sides.
There is a notch in the retainer, so you have to push down to release it from the notch.(catch) Once you have pushed it down out of it's notch you then must push backwards so it slides along the retainer until it is free from it. It's only a couple inches and it releases. Follow these steps, one side at a time and your seat will come right out.

I have a 2000 Pontiac Sunfire and my passenger seat isn't going back at all. Its stuck right as far as it can when u adjust the seat and push the seat all the way as far as it can go to the front....


It could be off track, the tracks could be full of debris an/or the release is not fully releasing. Start with a visual inspection, a good cleaning and some lube. Silicone spray moving parts and see if it helps.

How do you remove the rear seat of 2004 honda accord


Release the two latches at the front of the seat cushion (pull back on the latches to release the front of the cushion).

Remove the seat cushion bolt and remove the cushion (it’s roughly in the center. You have to insert a socket extension between the back and bottom seat cushions to take it out, after you find it by pressuring the bottom cushion and looking back in there).

Remove the bolts (each side) securing the seat side bolsters (they are easy to see once the bottom cushion is removed), then remove the side bolters (gently release the clips that hold them in).

Pull the seat forward, then remove the fasteners securing the seat hinge (seat pivot bracket) and remove the seat backs.

Hope this helps you.

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.

How do i remove the back seat of a 2000 toyota corolla?


Lift up on the front edge of the seat part and slide it out. Next, remove the bolts that hold the back in place. It will pop right out.

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.
