Question about 2007 Honda Ridgeline
When raising the rear seat the legs will no snap back they just stand out.
Honda now offers metal 9zinc) cable retractors for the rear seat legs thet are supposeed to retract automatically wher you forld the seaat up. About $8.00 each. You will need tow of them. one for each seat. atahe original ones were plastic so at least these are a better solution. The dealer printed out the instructions on how to repair this problem and the part numbers you will need to do so. Ask your local Honda dealer service tech for a copy of the Honda bullitin that was sent out about March 2011 on this issue. This bulliten is very helpfull. Mcgrath Honda in Elgin Ill. gave me a copy of it.

Solution is to go to www.ridgelineownersclub.com forum. Do a search on rear seat pulleys. Honda uses cheap plastic pulleys in the seat retraction assembly. There are a couple of people providing machined stainless or aluminum pulleys for around $100 for the pair. (for both seats). If you have fixed free under warranty, the dealer will use the same cheap pulleys.

1. Pull the plastic panels under the seat bottom straight forward to remove them.
2. Remove the six bolts (14mm) holding the seat and center seatbelt in place.
3. Pop the two small plastic covers at the top and behind the seat using a trim removal tool or screwdriver tip covered in masking tape.
4. Lift the seat straight upward.
The Service Manual states a 35 ft lb torque and must be re-installed in a certain sequence for the 6 seat anchor bolts (not the seat belt bolts). When putting the rear seat back in install the bolts in this order. (1) center left (2) center right (3) left lower (4) right lower (5) left upper (6) right upper.
