Fold Down Headrest on rear seat of 2011 Hyundai Santa Fe not folding down. How to fix ??

The seat will fold down, but the headrest does not fold forward out of the way so the seat cannot fold down all the way but runs into the back of the front seat.

SOURCE: Rear seat won't fold down (60 part of 60/40 seat)

I had the same problem on my '03. The seats would not fold down using the latch release as I had always done. So I tried a combination of pulling up on the side latch AND the top latch and the seat folded down. It really doesn't FIX the problem but circumvents offending  defective part. I will use this method until it doesn't work then I might shell out the $$$$$ to the dealer.

SOURCE: 2003 Toyota Corolla LE back seat fold down? how?!

Open the back trunk, look near the top of the trunk, and pull the two black levers. They have a seat folding down symbol. That will release the locks to fold the back seat down.

Rear seat jammed release lever does not clear


Is this a fold-down rear seat? Is it jammed the the folded or open position? If folded, try putting some weight and pressure on the seat back while trying the release lever (having an 8-year old bounce on it would probably work well :-}). If it's jammed in the open position, have the same "assistant" bounce back and forth against the seat back while you attempt the release lever. If no 8-year old is readily available, have your spouse/significant other, friend (or enemy) perform the same actions as would the child. The latch may simply need some "persuasion". Good luck.

2006 Jeep Comander.....second row headrest


I have a dealer with some traditional values.Rang up to ask about booking in - could always cancel if fixed - and he said "lift the fabric at the base of the seat where it meets the backrest. In there there is a cable like a bicycle brake cable. Give it a prod, fold down the back rest and then fold up again. This cable makes the headrest move and sometimes it gets stuck". Well, tried it just now - headrest fixed. Total time to implement fix ~1 minute. Great Dealer! Could have ripped me of for loads of money and I would have never known.

Hai i would like to know how to fold the back car seat to increase cargo space in hyundai santa fe 2003


The rear seats have a pull strap located between the bottom cushion and the backrest of the rear seats used to disengage a lock to lift up the bottom cushion. The pull straps will only stick out an inch or so, or they might have fallen down between the seats and then you wont see them. Before you can lower the backrest of the rear seats, the bottom cushions have to be lifted up and forward out of the way so that the backrest may lie down flat. If your pull straps are not visible between the bottom cushion and the backrest, you may have to stick your hand between the cushions and feel for the straps. Once you find the straps, pull upward on the while lifting on the bottom cushion where the pull strap is located and the seat should tilt forward. Once you have manged to do this, the lever for the backrest is located on the top of the backrest. Just slide the lever and tilt the backrest to the desired position.

How to fold down back seat


There should be a loop between the seat and backrest, pull that and the seat will pull toward the front seats. After that, pull the lever located at the outside of the backrest. This lever is on the outside of the seat by the door-side of the seat. Pull that up and allow the backrest will fold down and the headrest will pivot back and your seat is folded down.
