Question about Cars & Trucks
My 2012 Subaru forester's rear seat locking pin on the drivers side was pulled out. Now i can't fold the seat down. Any way i can fix this?
Try unscrewing the mat and cover on the back of the seat to reconnect it.

SOURCE: rear folding seat belt locked
get your dealer to replace the seat belt, depending on age, should be under warranty. Belt is defective. I have a g 2003 vue, and my dealer replaced the belt for no charge.

I had the same problem. The dealer wanted $400 to replace the latch. I didn't wnat to pay that much so I looked at it and found that the release strap was twisted and jammed in the mechanism. Here's how I fixed it.
I removed the screw from the lever and removed the lever. I pulled apart the plastic housing. It does not come apart all the way but enough to work on it. Pull the release strap that comes out of the back and pull it clear of the mechanism and straighten it out. slip the lever back on and the seat should fold. Fold it up all the way to make it easier to reassemble. Pull the lever back off and slip the release strap back into the slot and make sure it is not twisted or kinked. Snap the housing back together, put the lever back on, and screw it in. Test it and it should work fine. Hope this helps,

try looking for anything on the seat that can make it unlock and if there is no buttons try just rocking it back and forth real hard

I solved the problem by spraying WD40 into the front side of the seat support that was sticking. This support has a rubber closure to protect the mechanics of the seat. After spraying a generous amount of WD40, I waited about 5 minutes and tried the lever to fold the seat. It worked and still does.
