I have had a similar problem on my 2004 Siena 2 times - strap you pull to release the seat has no tension. Dealer fixed under war both times (I watched the second time). If your problem is the same, the cable that controls the release may not be in position. As I recall, you remove about six screws, remove the plastic housing, find the cable and reset then test the release.

2006 Toyota Sienna Limited. Rear powered folding seats will not erect completely. Seats come up out of the well, the seats lock in place on floor, but the seat backs will not erect (remain folded down on...


I also have a 2006 XLE limited with the same problem. I had to take it to the dealership to get the seats back in an upright position. The only answer they could give me is that both tracks and motor had worn out and must be replace at a tune of $2,500.00. I find it hard to believe both tracks and motors simultaneously went out. Plan on filing a complaint, just not sure yet were to send it.

Rear seat belt is stuck in recline position. I recline the rear seat to make room and I can not raise the seat back up. The seat belt is not allowing the seat to raise


The problem:
The set belt stop has been lost so the seat belt retracts too far when the seat is laid flat. When laid flat the release mechanism lock as it should when not level. So the seat cannot be raised up as the belt is too tight and locked.
The Solution:
1) Push the two little clips to release and remove the headrests.
Pull the grey lever on the right of the seat base, lift seat base up and forward toward the front seat..
2) See two red capped leversat the back of the two seat hinges and lever them to the upward position, this releases the seat.
Rock the very heavy seat unit upwards and lift complete unit upwards.
3) Take it out of the car and turn 180% so that the back of the seat and base are in the upward position and the seat belt will pull out as it should
4) Replace the missing belt locking stop (I used a tie pin permanently fixed using super glue).
5) Fold seat back down and test then either re-fit seat unit or leave out to decrease fuel consumption.. 2_5_2014_8_03_56_pm.jpg 5f6d2b58-2927-4184-9c82-d111e3a9591a.jpg e9f641fc-5fbc-4c21-a371-ff371d942b1a.jpg a357ac71-d6ed-4dc7-999c-04367d3d6e72.jpg

Can't reinstall 3rd row seat 98 toyota sienna


These seats are hard to get in and out, especially if the receiver hook on the floor has any obstruction; so first thing is to clear out anything that may be interfering with the seat from properly seating in the front hooks.

This fix applies to seats that are stuck and won't come out as well as seats that won't go back in.

Each seat has two levers on their back, marked; one for 'tumble' and the other for remove. Problem is, if you press the 'tumble' lever when the seat is out it may not let you replace the seat without first holding BOTH levers up while pushing the seat back into place, then pushing the seat DOWNWARD to reset the mechanism for tumble. Then, push the seat down so that the locking mechanism for tumble (a black lever under and on the drivers side of the seat).

If the receiver hooks are clear and the seat retainer mechanism is properly set you will be able to push the seat in and press down on the back of the seat and hear a very satisfying thunk that lets you know the seat is properly locked in.

These seats can handle quite a bit of shoving and jamming, and you may just have to work it hard to get them back into place.

I want to make my 1999 Mercury Villager Sport into a cargo loader, with just the front seats kept and the rest of the back empty. How do I remove the other 3 seats? So far, I can't get any of them to budge...


the middle seats come out easily. There are 2 handles you have to lift up on each of the bucket seats, they are in the front of the seat down by the seat tracks. After you lift them, tilt the seat upward in the front and rotate them backward. Then lift out of the hooks. Each seat is held down by 4 hoks.

The 3rd row seat is not designed to come out xcept by a technician. It does slide forward all the way up to the front seat. It has a sliding seat track.
First, lift the T handle under the seat cushion on the left front side of the seat. This will allow you to lift the seat bottom up all the way to lcok in the full up position.
Then, lift the lever on the same side of the seat and slide the seat forward. It will stop in 4 places.
Rear -Rear
6 inches forward of that.
another two ft to the second row seating position
full frward against the front seats.

Pleae rate as fixya if this helps.

Rear seat won't come back up


I had the same thing happen! Pushed all the way down the rear back locks, to unlock push the lever in and press DOWN on the seat to release the lock.
I had to check my manual, I tried to lift it 'case it made sense but nope - you have to press down while pushing the lever.
