Question about Dodge Grand Caravan
I have a 2012 Dodge Grand Caravan. The headrest for one of the seats in the 2nd row is stuck in the upright position. Because of this, I can't stow the seat in the stow and go compartment. The seat next to it works fine. When I pull the release strap, its headrest collapses automatically. Any suggestions on how to fix the one that's stuck?
The middle seat headrest does not fold down in our 2013 Town and Country. something is definitely stuck not allowing the latch to release it.

I had to take it to the dealer to get it 'unstuck' and they ended up bending the frame of the backseat! If you can get into the spot where it locks into the trunk frame you can unlock it yourself, but you need a second person to hold the seat back form the trunk frame so you can POSSIBLY squeeze your hand or a tool in there to do it. Its VERY DIFFICULT! Hope that made sense...lol

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,
