Releasing the backrest of the 2nd row of seats

I can not figure out how to lower the backrest of my 2nd row seating. The bottom portion of the seat just pulls down but I cannot get the back rest to come down so passengers have access to get to the 3rd row seats. There is no lever or switch.. help!!!!

I have a 2003 tahoe and you have to pull the bottom up to a certain point and then the back of the seat will unlock and fold down. it took me forever to finally figure that out. good luck.

I have a 2001 chevy tahoe, i don't know if it's the same but there is a cable that is attached to the bottom portion and sometimes comes loose. check for that, it looks like a brake cable for a bike. let me know if this helps.

There is a special spring release under rear seats, under bottom of seat,at floor level, this releases the seat and allows it to fold ahead. often rusts and needs to be greased.Suggest white spray grease!!

How can remove the the back seat of Corolla LE 2009


The back seats usually come with a wire seat holder imbedded within the seat. You have to push down on the knew rest area in an downward and back to the rear of the vehicle motion to remove the bottom portion of the seat. You do this on both sides. Once exposed you will see where the back portion of the backrest seat will have bolts on the bottom of the frame that need to be removed, along with the seat belt screws. You might have to purchase a special six or eight point star torques bit to remove the bolts but they are worth having around.

Hai i would like to know how to fold the back car seat to increase cargo space in hyundai santa fe 2003


The rear seats have a pull strap located between the bottom cushion and the backrest of the rear seats used to disengage a lock to lift up the bottom cushion. The pull straps will only stick out an inch or so, or they might have fallen down between the seats and then you wont see them. Before you can lower the backrest of the rear seats, the bottom cushions have to be lifted up and forward out of the way so that the backrest may lie down flat. If your pull straps are not visible between the bottom cushion and the backrest, you may have to stick your hand between the cushions and feel for the straps. Once you find the straps, pull upward on the while lifting on the bottom cushion where the pull strap is located and the seat should tilt forward. Once you have manged to do this, the lever for the backrest is located on the top of the backrest. Just slide the lever and tilt the backrest to the desired position.

2003 chevy tahoe 2nd row seating


lower the bottom portion, there will be two black cables. follow them toward the back of the seat, past a black round plate, where they become top and bottom cables. Push down toward the floor board on the bottom cable (my bottom cable is no longer black coated but rather a bare feeling cable wire). When pushing down on the bottom cable, pull the seat forward. As the seat does come forward the headrest will fold back at the same time. Not an easy find for me either, they should just make a release lever, but oh well..... I Hope this helps. Just keep playing around with those two cables until it finally does release.

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.
