The black bar is to remove the seat. That's the only reason for it.

SOURCE: driver side second row seat will not fold down.

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,

How to remove 3rd row seat


If your Freestar is similar to earlier Windstars, third row seat removal is approached from the rear with the tailgate open. There are two latches at the bottom that pull up to release the seat from its locked position. You tilt the seat forward and pull up then pull the seat back toward you to release.

How do I remove second row seat


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.

I have 2 bucket seats in the middle of my 2007 montana. can i take one out?


Yes of course you can remove the seat. There is a pull at the rear of the seat in the middle (down on the frame) The pull is a loop of material. You need to pull that up with solid force, this will release the lock so you can tilt your seat forwards. Once the seat is rotated forward enough, you will be able to lift the seat out.
I leave my seat out behind the drivers seat most of the time for easy access into the back and just putting stuff in the car. Also, the side clearance height is higher than the rear hatch height.

Remove seat from second row in Honda Mini Van 2007


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.

Good luck,
bob

I want to make my 1999 Mercury Villager Sport into a cargo loader, with just the front seats kept and the rest of the back empty. How do I remove the other 3 seats? So far, I can't get any of them to budge...


the middle seats come out easily. There are 2 handles you have to lift up on each of the bucket seats, they are in the front of the seat down by the seat tracks. After you lift them, tilt the seat upward in the front and rotate them backward. Then lift out of the hooks. Each seat is held down by 4 hoks.

The 3rd row seat is not designed to come out xcept by a technician. It does slide forward all the way up to the front seat. It has a sliding seat track.
First, lift the T handle under the seat cushion on the left front side of the seat. This will allow you to lift the seat bottom up all the way to lcok in the full up position.
Then, lift the lever on the same side of the seat and slide the seat forward. It will stop in 4 places.
Rear -Rear
6 inches forward of that.
another two ft to the second row seating position
full frward against the front seats.

Pleae rate as fixya if this helps.

Need to remove backseat


You can not remove the far back seat, only the middle one. But you can slide it all the way foward. I have had my van for two years and just learned how to do it today from my husband. Below the rear are two levers. A and B. Make sure the back of the seat is in the upright position and then pull on Levee A. At the same time, lift of the bottom of the seat. It will go up and fold together making a V with the back of the seat. Then pull lever B and slide seat forward.
