Handle on back side of passenger seat broken off on 03 Odyssey
My 1 and 3 year old kids sit in the second row in our minivan. They tend to kick the horizontal handle that is on the back side of the front row seats. One side of one of the handles has come off and I want to reattach. Do I have to now cut out the perferated little window in the handle and use a screw to screw the handle back onto the seat or is there a better solution? Kind regards, P.
Re: Handle on back side of passenger seat broken off on...
Did you get an answer? I have the same problem but with a 2000 Odyssey: horizontal handle on backside of passenger seat has broken off (left side of handle only). I don't believe this was from any abuse as the kids are too small....bad design.

If its on rails, pull the handle and slide it off. If no rails pull really hard from the top or kick from the back. Check for bolts behind and underneath the carpet, it may have a couple fasteners. You can really beat on a seat and it will take it. Sometimes that's what you gotta do.
Sounds like your cable maybe broke or come off at the release mechanism under the seat. Sometimes you can replace the parts, other times its the whole seat. Id check to see if everything is connected and its not one that just came off. Lube up the mechanisms real good if everythings connected as advertised as with all the junk that gets under the seats sometimes they get gummed up.
The middle row seat slides forward to the middle position (and several other positions as well.)
Owners manual explains how to slide rear seat foreard.
Remove middle row seats. Lift handle under 3rd row seat cushion on passenger side. Raise seat cushion up until it locks up. Then lift the lever on the passenger side of seat and pull seat forward until it locks in place.
if you don't have owner manual, go to motorcraft.com, pro center, tech info, owner manual.

Pain but fixable. Sounds like the linkage is not connected. Even a mechanic will have to remove the door panel and fight with it. If you can remove the rear seat from the drivers side side door then you might have room to remove the passenger side door panel to fix it. Usually clips are the first thing to break on door handle/latch linkages
A handful of newer vehicles have sensors in the seat where you have to weigh so much in order for the airbag to work (light on the dash will tell you if it's off) or they have a spot for the ignition key in the dash so you can manually turn it off.. my next guess would be to either have them sit in the back or pull the fuse
on the passenger side feel under the seat and there is a lever that pulls toward you as you stand at the sliding door.
First, raise the armrest, then lower the back all the way forward. Then remove the headrest sit it out of the way and while pulling the lever under the seat towards you, lift up the seat from the back so it tilts forward. When it is standing on its "nose" lift first one side shifting it either forward or backwards to clear the rod on which it is hooked. Do the same with the other side of the seat and then lift it out. Installation is the reverse of removal.
The other seat is much the same, though sometimes the lever is a little different but in the same place.
not sure about your specific vehicle but i do know that in the winter, when a door closes, it grabs the pin in your doorjam like a lobster claw closes on a finger. if any moister is inside the mechinism, it can freeze very easily. also if you pull on the door handles tp try to open it...if the door handle moves freely, then you either bent or popped the rod that goes from the latch mechanism to the handles and you would have to take off the interior wall of the door to get to it and fix the rod or put it back...it used to happen to older cars allk the time.
