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.

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.
The passenger side 2nd row release lever is at the lower right corner. On the driver side, there is no release lever, just a pull ******** the center of the seat, that sometimes falls between the seat.
It should be under the back seat in the passenger side.The bottom cushion hinges forward on hooked anchor tabs at the lower
front of the cushion. Take hold of the bottom cushion at the seam where
it meets the bottom of the backrest and lift. The bottom cushion will
hinge forward and the hooked tabs at the lower front of the cushion will
release from the anchors so that you can lift the cushion out of the
hi normally you can do this by...pulling the headrest top its maximum height , at the bottom you should see two black plastic rings, on either side of these rings are little partitions push these inward and pull the headrest at the same it can be a bit awkward but if you do one side at a time or get someone to pull the headrest while you push the clips in can be very helpfull...hope this helps please vote thanks
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.
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 tool (big, 4-sided allen wrench) w/ your jack, etc. Pull up small flap of rug behind front passenger seat (i.e., on floor in front of 2nd row, passenger side). Insert tool, turn and tire lowers to ground. Dan
