yes you will need new cables for tilting seats & you will also need both handles as when taking out guaranteed to break handle cables work out about £10 each & handles are about £19 each plus vat know this because done a couple & a bit tricky to do.

SOURCE: my rear folding seats wont fold down

When you open the trunk, there should be a knob at the top right of the opening. Pull that and it will unlock the locking mechanism for the rear seats. I just recently figured that one out myself!

SOURCE: my 3 door fiesta passenger side seat won't go

there is a cable that is attached to that and goes down to a release in the bottom of the seat, find it and you will be able to release it.

How?


Not to much details there, but I'll try. My guesses are, handle and cable in the seat have separated, the cable has broken, some other pulley / clamp / clip has slipped out of place. If you can't find any of these, have you considered using a piece of wire / cord etc. to pull the release manually (if possible)? If you still have this problem after looking over that stuff, take pics of seat, clamp, handle and upload. I may have a better solution if I could see it. Hope I helped anyway. Grimm

Driver side second row seat will not fold down. When pulling the release catch the seat does not release . I can not fold the seat flat to carry a large load in the rear of the vehicle.


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,

A4 convertible drivers seat.


I have had the exact same problem , the actaual cause of the seat not sliding back is due to the small cable retaing clip which fastens at the underneath of the seat this is a very common problem and is very trickY to get to as you say the rear panel appers to need to come off , it does not, you axs the small clip from removeing the liners at the very bottom of the seat where there is a footwell light , when you axs this area you be able to get to the clip or the actaul cable ,to which ever is broken,,

The back seat not going up .


The double seat actually gets caught on the bottom of the second row seat cover. If you move the second row middle seat forward a couple of inches it will release the rear folding seat and allow it to return to the upright position. You can also reach inside the back seat and push the seat cover ( which by the way has a metal bar in it ) forward to release the rear seat.
