You will need a new cable. But it is still movable. look under the seat and you will see the mechanism right there. You can use a pair of pliers or a screw driver to move it manually till you get your replacement cable.

SOURCE: 2003 YUKONXL 2ND SEAT DOES NOT SLIDE ON TRACK,

It sounds like one or more of the release cables came undone from your lever. Lift the lever, inspect all around it, look under the seat where the track is. There should be a small round cable that runs from your handle down to the release. Also there may be a thin wire that runs from the left side to the right side. If you find it and reconnect it you should be golden.
Good Luck!

SOURCE: removing the 2nd and 3rd row seats

3rd row, you simply pull the lever which makes the back fold down and then grip the handle located on the bottom and pull toward you slightly hard. They are heavy so it seems like they aren't coming out, just pull hard. second row, you flip all the way up and push with them standing up and they come unhooked. Good Luck! I didn't have any problems, except they are at least 50+lbs!

lower the bottom portion, there will be two black cables. follow them toward the back of the seat, past a black round plate, where they become top and bottom cables. Push down toward the floor board on the bottom cable (my bottom cable is no longer black coated but rather a bare feeling cable wire). When pushing down on the bottom cable, pull the seat forward. As the seat does come forward the headrest will fold back at the same time. Not an easy find for me either, they should just make a release lever, but oh well..... I Hope this helps. Just keep playing around with those two cables until it finally does release.

Got it, with the help and eyes of my wife. The rear latch releases as the seat back is lowered. This release is ALMOST seat back down (about 3 inches above the seat bottom). As the seat back lowers, apply constant lift on the rear latch, and it will release as the seat back lowers. Hard-won knowledge - I think I invented some bad words in the process.

These are cable controlled and linked remove the seat and cycle the locks and see if they move together, if not a cable has broken or come unhooked. Most of these seat backs are Val crowed so it may open right up

Third row seat latched on left but not right


I just ran into the exact problem with my 2004 Suburban. Once I got the seat to lay down all the other mechanisms worked as they should and I could get the seat in and out as usuall. I found this post below which explained how to get the seat down. Wish I could take credit for figuring it out on my own but I can't.
"After working on it for a couple of days here is what I did to remove the 3rd row seat.
On the rear lower right and left side there are plastic covers, if you push the seat material forward a little you can see a hole where a nut holds it on, remove the nut. On the left side pull back the plastic cover and you can see the wire and the lever that releases the seat. With my foot holding up the #1 release lever on the right side I used an open end wrench to push forward the left side lever and the seat folded down.
I then used the #2 and #3 levers to remove the seat.
To view the whole cable, open the lower seat cover, it is an overlapping plastic clip, My problem was a loose cable, similar to a brake cable on a bicycle, after fixing it I have had no problems."
To remove the nut I used an 8mm socket wrench. My problem was not a loose cable but the #1 mechanism wouldn't pull up all the way, I'm guessing because that left side locked in out of order. I pushed that left side lever down with a hard tool and had my 5yr old daughter pull up on the #1 and the seat folded right down.
Hope this helps if you havn't already gotten it fixed.

2004 3rd row rear seat won't fold down using lever


Cable is broken or stretched. pick up the bottom seat and see the cable end if broken or slack from being stretched pull that cable and then the back should fold down. Ibelieve you will need to remove seat to repair the cable. the bottom seat when lifted pulls on a cable that releases the backs lock to fold down

2nd row, passenger side seat will not slide forward after you tilt the seatback forward to allow for rear entry. Is there something that is locked or anything I should be looking at to fix this?


There is a little green plastic clip that is attached to the cable and pull lever, if you trace from the pull lever and cable to mechanical lever then to bottom of the frame it is on the bottom half of the seat, you will see it once you flip up the seat bottom over , on the black metal frame is where the clip is at, towards the bottom and facing the other seat frame that your not flipped up. well anyways the green clip is probably broken, or the cable came undo( which I doubt) the clip is a weak point in the seat mechanism , you wont be able to find it a retail automotive stores, dealer item only , that's if they even carry it anymore, or you might try a junk yard and look around for another excursion seat or a f250 or super duty and use that one. I've heard that you might be able to use the American door lock clips plastic hardware, they are suppose to look alike, but ford wont tell you that. The kit is at AutoBodyToolmart .com Part # 9914 for about $26.99 , that's what I heard. Good Luck !!!
