    need to know if this is 60/40 sat or 40/20/40 seat.

  • gerry bissi May 11, 2010

    check to see if something is binding in the lcoking device. Lube it with WD40, Pry around carefully with a screwdriver.



    Check to see if release lever is binding/stcuk open.

Jus t purchased a used 2003 yukon xl and trying to find out how to fold the 2nd row seat down cannot find a lever on the one side


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.

2006 Ford Explorer: Back seat won't fold flat to create flat cargo area. It folds down but not flush.


Okay so im just going to start from the seat being upright in a normal riding position.

1. You need to fold the head rests first. Pull the black tab under both headrests. They should spring into a folded position.

2. pull the side seat lever (on the door side of the seat). This will fold the top/back support down to an angle.

3. There is one more lever on the backside of this seat. Its in plain sight on the angled portion of your seat. Lift the big plastic lever.

4. While keeping the handle lifted, grasp the back of the seat and pull it torwards the front of the car. The seat should come unlocked and roll forward and down more towards the floor. If you have a bunch of junk on the floor, it obviously wont work. clear the path and the seat will fold completely flat.

Also, your drivers seat and front passenger seat cannot be all the way back, they need to come forward some in order for the second row seats' head rests to clear and fold flat.

How do you remove the rear seat out of a 2001 Ford Excursion


If you are talking about the third row seat, the first step is to fold the seat down. Pull the lever behind the passenger side of the third row seat and fold the seat down. Then, from the cargo area, raise the bar located directly behind the third row seat and lift the seat forward. The seat should now be detached from the car and can be removed. When you reinstall the seat, be sure to secure the seat properly so passengers do not get injured in a sudden vehicle maneuver. This should help you to fix your problem. Contact me at FixYa if you have any further questions.

Does 2003 Ford Explorer have 3rd row seat


The third seat was an option on this model. Your model may or may not have the third seat. You should be able to tell by looking at the floor in the back. Ford may have included the rear cup holders on all models for ease of production.

Handle on back side of passenger seat broken off on 03 Odyssey


The square in the middle of the sides of the handle comes out and you can screw it back in. We have fixed this several times as my kids were always kicking it and putting their feet up on the seat.

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.
