There realy is no way to "repair" these things. They make the parts "throw away" now and it makes it really difficult to repair anything anymore. The best thing to do do is find someone who is good at metal/welding fabrication and see how much to make a new part. One more thing you can do is call the Ford rep from the number in your owner's handbook and see if they will help. Get all your paperwork in order showing past repairs of the seat and that it has in fact been an ongoing issue and you seek them to make it right and proper so you may enjoy your vehicle. Don't forget to express what an "inconvienance" this is and how it has "disrupted your work schedule time and time again". At the risk of sounding insensitive or rude, if weight is an issue, they may call that into play. Be prepared and state that "it should have already been tested for real people and real weight scenarios", and "when I purchased the vehicle new, no one informed me that I may cause these issues time and time again or I would have purchased a different vehicle that has a better quality rating and would hold me up!!" Let me know if you need any more help or any other ways to address them. Keep in mind, "you are a loyal Ford customer and will continue to purchase their products provided they stand behind them!!" and you want them on your side.!

How do i adjust the paasenger seat in my 1999 VW beetle?


There is a D shaped handle on the side of the seat nearest the door. Lift up on it and the seat back will fold forward, and the entire seat mechanism will lift up and to the front, giving your passengers room to get into the back seat. Simply push the seat back toward the rear of the car to set it back in place; it will lock itself down once it's back in its original position.

My ford fiesta 3 door car's passengers seat wont fold forward is there a part i can replace or do i have to buy a new seat as my wife is nearly 7 months pregnant and it would be more safe to have both...


There should be latch on the lower right side of the seat. If this not working properly the seat wont release from the lock.

Register at www.autozone.com (it's free). Once registered you'll have access to several repair manuals that should show how to fix it and what part you'll need. You can then get the part from a dealer or save $$ and gert it from an auto parts store.

2006 Ford Explorer: Back seat won't fold flat to create flat cargo area. It folds down but not flush.


Okay so im just going to start from the seat being upright in a normal riding position.

1. You need to fold the head rests first. Pull the black tab under both headrests. They should spring into a folded position.

2. pull the side seat lever (on the door side of the seat). This will fold the top/back support down to an angle.

3. There is one more lever on the backside of this seat. Its in plain sight on the angled portion of your seat. Lift the big plastic lever.

4. While keeping the handle lifted, grasp the back of the seat and pull it torwards the front of the car. The seat should come unlocked and roll forward and down more towards the floor. If you have a bunch of junk on the floor, it obviously wont work. clear the path and the seat will fold completely flat.

Also, your drivers seat and front passenger seat cannot be all the way back, they need to come forward some in order for the second row seats' head rests to clear and fold flat.
