Will it latch if you push the release handle down, you know opposite of trying to get it to release? It might be a broken or dislodged retaining spring that pulls downward pressure on the release handle. If this is not the problem then the teeth on the gear that the release handle engage are possibly worn out.

SOURCE: installation of rear facing car

Use "pool noodles" that you have pre- cut into lengths equal to the width of the base. Some experimenting will be needed; you may have to stack them like a pyramid, with more towards the back of the seat. Bath towels work as well but are more slippery on leather.

SOURCE: The rear hatch on my 04 4runner LTD won't latch. Motor cycles closed, then opens.

If the motor requires too much voltage to finish the cycle, it could trigger the computer to think there is a blockage.

SOURCE: The driver seat on my 2001 Toyoto Corolla leans back too much. I'd like to sit a bit more upright while driving, and so it's uncomfortable. The passenger seat is a lot better. I took it to a

You make up seat back stops out of some type
of hard plastic to move the seat back forward

If you have no stops on each corner, then the seat
comes out,upholstory off & some TIG Welding takes

You could shim the rear mounting brackets
on the floor but that is sort of crude & the bottom
cushion will feel odd

There is something preventing the seat from latching in the upright position. Look for a piece of cloth or paper preventing the seat from becoming fully upright.

Is it not locking on both the front and right side? Or is there a problem only with one side? In all probability the issue could be with your locking mechanism on your seat, have it checked and replaced.

I have a 99 Silverado and the passenger side seat back will not lock back into the upright position. Locks fine into reclining positions. What could be the problem?


i had this problem on my 96 chevy, basically theres a set of ratcheting gears that lock the seat in place in the various positions. sometimes over time or due to abuse one side or the other gets stripped out and the seat will no longer lock into place. i found a ripped up seat on Craigslist that was in a part out truck and bought it cheap then took both seats in the an upholstery shop, between the junked out seat (15 bucks) and the labor at the shop (50bucks) it cost me 65 bucks to fix, hope this helps

My driver seat back snapped and will no longer stay in the upright position. The bottom (****) part operates fine.


There is a pin near the hinge that is supposed to catch and then latch your seat into an upright position. If this has come loose, simply engage it again and tighten it. If it is broken, you'll be looking to take to the shop and either get it wielded (not with the trouble and in some states reputable shops won't do it for crash test safety reasons) or have the seat replaced (the best and safest option).

Driver side seat back is loose


Sounds like your latch is broken. You can replace the latch, it is spring loaded .Once you remove the trim around the latch and pull the seat cover up you can gain access to the bolts. You will need a torx bit ,I believe a t40 not sure. 13mm and 15mm socket.

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.
