Question about 2005 Ford Freestar
I have tried pulling the black bar up, pushing it down and also pulling it forward. It will not budge.
The black bar is to remove the seat. That's the only reason for it.

Testimonial: "Thank you so much. I then assume that the seats can be removed, but not adjusted forward and back."
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

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,
