SOURCE: I have a 1997 Ford Escort. The rear seat belt is stuck

make sure that the rear seats are properly locked into rear catches as this can stop your seatbels from working if ok then sounds like your seatbelt is faulty req new seatbelt.

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,

Why won't the passenger seat back recline?


You may have a broken/disconnected release cable from the release handle to the lock mechanism. If there is no pressure on the release handle when you activate it a cable would be suspected. If handle feels like there is resistance on it ( cable connected ) try pushing back on the top of the seat while pulling the release handle. The cable could have some stretch and not release the latch properly

How to remove right rear seat on a 2014 porsche cayenne


I'm not sure what exactly your asking here, as these seats have built in levers on the top left that requires you to pull them forward releasing the catch at the top of the seat. You must pull the bottom of the seat up first, then remove the headrests and place them in the slots located on the bottom part of the seat. This is for convenience of storage for them. If the lever has broken as this is the case with many, you need to get a screwdriver to lift up the catch on the back of the top part of the seat. If you want to remove the seat entirely you'll need to purchase triple square sockets. I think it's a T20. I beleive it's the same size as for the bolts to remove the front seat to gain access to the battery.

Rear seat latch wont catch afraid to put kids in seat in case of accident


Is it not locking on both the front and right side? Or is there a problem only with one side? In all probability the issue could be with your locking mechanism on your seat, have it checked and replaced.

2001 v70 rear seat will not fold down


Cause is a broken catch linkage - weak bit of plastic

You need two long screwdrivers to lever the metal mechanism

Ease back the upholstery on the side of the seat

look for a small shiny roller to lever upwards, and a further lever to push backwards.

This releases the catch

A4 convertible drivers seat.


I have had the exact same problem , the actaual cause of the seat not sliding back is due to the small cable retaing clip which fastens at the underneath of the seat this is a very common problem and is very trickY to get to as you say the rear panel appers to need to come off , it does not, you axs the small clip from removeing the liners at the very bottom of the seat where there is a footwell light , when you axs this area you be able to get to the clip or the actaul cable ,to which ever is broken,,
