Question about 2001 Ford Focus
I would like to know I do you fold the rear back seat flat
To fold the seats flat you need to lift the seat portion upwards so that it sits vertical behind the driver's seat and then remove the headrests on the rear seats. Then use the large button to release the seat rest portion and drop it into the cavity created by lifting the seat vertical.

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,

Okay so im just going to start from the seat being upright in a normal riding position.
1. You need to fold the head rests first. Pull the black tab under both headrests. They should spring into a folded position.
2. pull the side seat lever (on the door side of the seat). This will fold the top/back support down to an angle.
3. There is one more lever on the backside of this seat. Its in plain sight on the angled portion of your seat. Lift the big plastic lever.
4. While keeping the handle lifted, grasp the back of the seat and pull it torwards the front of the car. The seat should come unlocked and roll forward and down more towards the floor. If you have a bunch of junk on the floor, it obviously wont work. clear the path and the seat will fold completely flat.
Also, your drivers seat and front passenger seat cannot be all the way back, they need to come forward some in order for the second row seats' head rests to clear and fold flat.

More then likely the electric motor is failing, going up puts allot more load on the small motor. Have a dealer check this and confirm my guess.
