Open the trunk, there should be a black button on the driver's sid; pull it out. Don't close the trunk lid as this will push in the button. On the rear sea, drivers side, there should be a leather loop, it might be hidde between the seat and the inside moulding, puul on it and the seat will release.

I have a 1991 Volvo 740 wagon. I've tried to put the back seats down flat before, but i can never quite get it to go down all the way. Is it possible? If so, how? Thanks!

You have to flip the bottom of the rear seat forward. There should be a strap to pull where the seat bottom and seat back meet. The seats will not fold all the way down with out flipping the bottom up first.

Had new key intion on now my lights won;t flip up or down,

I would take it back to whoever did the install, and see if they will correct it. Is your light switch to flip up the lights on the steering column? Possible they pinched or inadvertently pulled a wire loose. I know on toyotas the flip up lights work off the light stalk, independent altogether of the ignition switch.

99 jimmy back seat lever is busted wont fold down HELP!

The best thing to do here is have an auto trim shop remove the seat cover and repair it rather than the more expensive dealer option.

I just bough a 1995 Chrysler LeBaron and I don't know how to put the top down.

Flip the sun-visors down. There should be two swivel latches there. Pull the latch handle toward the back of the car. In most cases you'll have to clear the hook from the lip underneath (that'll make sense when you see it). Once the latches are loose, look down at the middle console behind the shift selector. There should be a switch there that will operate the hydraulic pump that pulls the top up and down. Be forwarned...the top motors are inherit to electric motor breakdown (the brushes wear out pretty quickly) so if you hit the switch and don't hear the motor kick in...that is the most likely culprit.

How to remove back seat.

Flip the seat bottom up against the front seats, but don't fold the seat backs down yet.

2 - You'll notice that at the point where the hinge arms connect to the car there is a yellow tab. It's a retaining tab. Lift it slightly and it will allow you to slide the hinge arms sideways, removing them completely. Only the hinge nearer to you (assuming you are standing outside the car) has the yellow tab. The hinge nearer to the middle of the car has no retainer and will slide freely.

2005 ford 500 seat won't go forward, but will go up and down and lean back don't have manual to check right fuse.

I don't know for sure about the Ford 500 but in general the manufacturers don't have a lot of room for extra fuses and wires so probably only one fuse goes to the seat or seats. I would find the fuse box and hopefully the fuses are all labeled.

I assume the seat at one time went forward and backward. What can stop it from doing this is something like a rock getting in the gear and stopping the motor from moving or maybe just dying on its own. It could instead be a wire or connector.

I hope this helps.

I don know how to fold my rear seat down in my 2002 chevy silverado 2500hd. I can make the bottom seat fold up but I want to bring the back of it down. Do I have to take out the seat all the way or is the...

The rear seat backs do not fold down in these trucks, the seat bottom lifts up to gain access to the compartments below but the seat back does not fold down. The only thing you can do is physically remove the rear seats.

I went to put down my convertible top and it hit something in the back seat and now it is stuck. I had to manually put it down, the electrical part of it is still not working, Can anyone give me some...

I don,t understand how roof hit something in back seat
If roof is down you need to use special tool located end of driver side dash
Flip of plastic cover to see tool
Check owner manual how to use
The tool will locate between rear seat,this will close and lock rear cover
Make sure both sides of rear cover lock,get friend to press down
Once rear cover is locked down,remove tool,and check opperation
Make sure doors shut and windows down

How to remove backseat of 2005 f150

It is easy to do, don;'t let the directions make you think other wise.

The finding the latch in the seat back takes some time ( if you don't find it the 1st time ), so don't give up


When I got the seat latch released, I stuffed a short 2x4 ( covered in an old sock ) under the seat so it would not latch back down, and move to the other side.
