Question about 2009 Volkswagen Routan

1 Answer

2009 VW Routan - 2nd row captain seats will not fold forward? They will recline. Need to fold flat forward to remove from the van?

My 2nd row captain seats will not fold forward at all. They do recline with no problem? Any ideas?

    Dear Dawn S, I also have the same problem, but seem to recall I was able to fold them at one time early on. Despite the manual showing how simple it should be, it seems both seats are now locked from going forward (they both recline just fine). I took the car to the VW dealer service garage, and the guys there felt that the seats do not fold forward. I have just found the time again to work on this problem, and if I come up with a solution, I will post it here.

I'm assuming you have manual adjustment seats. There is a spring underneath the seat that locks the end of the lever into corresponding notches in the seat frame rail. That spring has either fallen off or broken.

SOURCE: how to fix a stuck seat belt VW GTI 2009

I just solved the problem for a stuck rear center seat belt in my 2002 Jetta.

Flip the base seat cushion forward against the front seat backs. Trace down along the belt to its tether point on the floor. The belt is sewn around a steel loop. The loop is anchored to a black steel hook. A thin silvery retainer plate is spring tensioned on top of the loop to prevent it from sliding off of the hook when the seat back is folded.

Therefore, you need to press the silvery retainer plate away from the hook (push up) to allow the loop to be slid from the hook. The belt was tight with the seat back in the upright position, so it was necessary to fold the seat back forward to create slack in the belt. Now push the belt loop towards the trunk and slide it off of the end of the hook (only possible with the retainer plate pushed up out of the way).

Now with total release of tension on the system via the bottom end of the seat belt being untethered and with the seat back returned to the upright position, normal extension and retraction of the belt will be reestablished. Next, simply extend the seat belt and slide the loop back into place over the floor hook. It snaps past the silvery retainer plate without all the effort required to hold the plate up during removal of the loop during disassembly.

Check again, the seat belt should be extending and retracting properly. Now just put the seat cushion back into regular position and you will be able to safely buckle up three people across the back seat.

It took about as long to do this repair as it has taken to post this answer to the problem. Note, the seat belt safety mechanism only allows normal extension and retraction of the belt when the seat back is upright.

Rear Seat Switches
There are three push button switches that are used to operate the power folding seat; front stow switch, rear stow switch, and recline switch. The front stow switch is located in the right rear quarter trim panel just behind the second row seat. The rear stow and recline switches are located in the right rear trim panel just inside the liftgate. Battery positive voltage is supplied at all times to all three switches from the FFS SW Fuse located in the left rear fuse block. The folding seat will operate only in a supervised mode, i.e. press and hold the selected switch button through the entire cycle of operation, or release the switch when the desired seat position is reached. When any folding seat switch is pressed, it sends a 12 volt signal through the switch signal circuit to the RSM. The RSM then commands the appropriate seat motors to move in response to the switch signal.
Rear Seat Module and Power and Ground
The rear seat module controls the position of the third row seat. When commanded it moves the seat from the seated position to the stowed position, or, from the stowed position to the seated position. With the seat in the seated position, the RSM can also move the angle of the seat back forward or rearward.
Battery positive voltage is supplied at all times to the module through the battery positive voltage circuit and the FFSM fuse located in the left rear fuse block. This voltage is used to power up the RSM and also to apply power to the seat motors when commanded. The RSM is grounded through the module ground circuit and G401.
The first place to start would be check the fuse's .Do you know where the left rear fuse block is located ? Fuse Block - Left Rear
In the passenger compartment, near the left side of the rear seat under the carpet
If the fuse is good next thing to do would be ,have check for DTC'S in the rear seat module ! This has nothing to do with check engine light or OBD 2 diagnostic trouble codes an a code reader for said OBD2 codes will not work . Would need a factory scan tool to check these codes.
DTC B1395
Battery positive voltage is supplied at all times to the rear seat load floor switch and the rear seat position switch by the rear seat module (RSM). The RSM monitors these battery positive voltage supply circuits for the protection of internal circuitry of the module.
DTC B1395 Device Voltage Reference Output 1 Circuit
DTC B1420 Device Voltage
Battery positive voltage is supplied at all times to the seat adjuster switch and the memory seat module (MSM) through the same circuit. The MSM uses this battery voltage input to determine if battery positive voltage is applied to the seat adjuster switch.

How to remove 2nd row bucket seats


The manual says to pull the strap or level and "double fold" it. The first time I tried it, the seat stuck. The trick was to do it as a single motion, fold the chair in half and swing the seat up and forward. Don't fold the back down then pull again to get the seat forward, it just gets stuck.
