This happened to me the other day! My husband took into Kia dealership only to be told they'd need it for a few hours, might have to take the whole seat apart, then resulting in labor charges!
This morning my dad came over with solutions he'd found online involving the use of a broomstick or rake. That didn't work. You first have to slide the whole seat in the forward position, so the metal tracking behind the seat is exposed. Next locate the cable cord on the inside of this track. My dad then took a long, flat head screwdriver, placed it under then cable and pushed it upwards/forwards-which released the rear latches and then I pulled the lever and we pushed the seat out!! Hope this helps!


Slide seat forward so the rear track

I had the same problem, but a slightly different variation. Apparently, my wife has the strength of several men. She bent the small guide wheel that rolls into position as the rear latch engages. It took me hours of staring at the unbroken seat, and then back at the broken one, before I noticed the difference. Also, it was not easy to bend the guide wheel back into position, until it released. Then I took the seat out, and bent it back into position with a pair of channel locks. Oh, and I had to cut the protective plastic cover off of that rear latch assembly to get a good whack at it. It's difficult to explain, so feel free to email me, and I'll post pictures. samoceanboy@yahoo.com

    @wobgroff has the best solution. Slide the seat ALL the way FORWARD on the track. This will expose the cable and top-side view of the rear latch. Pry up/forward with a screwdriver and lift on the back of the seat to free it.

    Then, curse yourself for not taking the time load the seat into the van face down to avoid accidentally dropping the rear latches down before the front latches are in, thus necessitating hours of yelling at an inanimate van seat in the back of a van when it is 100 degrees outside. Also, next time, I will take the time to slide the front seats forward to give me a little more room to position the seats correctly.

Who do I remove rear seat for a BMW 760li?


Most rear seats need to be unlatched from the very bottom on each side. Try sliding the driver and passenger seats fully forward. With your back against the front seat press forward toward the trunk on the bottom of the rear seat on one corner at a time near the floor and lift up. This should release the latch. To replace the seat simply slide the seat back into place with the front slightly raised upward and push the seat in toward the trunk then push down til you hear the latch catch.

My 06 malibu rear seat will not go down due to stuck switch


Push on the seat to the rear while pulling the cable release. Sounds like latch is adjusted too tight. If this works make adjustment before putting the seat back up. Open trunk & you should also be able to get to the speakers and the latch for the seat back. May require a screwdriver or something narrow & long to push on the latch arm while another person pushes & pulls the seat back to unlatch.

Ditto for me. My son accidently latched one of the rear latches but none of the others. We could not get it off. We found this answer and tried it and it worked. I lifted on the rear of the seat while he folded the back of the seat down. It released when we did this. Whew

Where is the blower motor on a 2006 kia sedona lx


The front heater/AC blower is under the dash on the passenger side and can be removed in less than 5 minutes with a #2 phillips screw driver. (6 screws) I purchase an after-market blower for $65 as opposed to the dealers $175. When the "after-Market" blower arrived I found it had the same stampings, stickers and was made in the same Korean factory! The rear blower is in the passenger side rear quarter panel and is a little tougher to remove. If you have any skill with a screw driver it's a piece of cake.

I have a kia 2006 sedona. the passenger side front seat belt locks you back to the seat very hard and will not release to allow forward movement.


Hi, this is a generic problem with the car and once these belts is beginning to lock up, its almost impossible to free them. It's high time you visit the deal and preparing your mind to change it...

Driver side 2nd row seat is stuck in my 2002 kia sedona


I have had a similar problem. I solved it by keping the seat back raised, get someone to rock the seat back violently while you pull on the balck strap and try and remove the seat. This may not happen 1st time if not spray WD40, and lots of it all over the seat linkages and locking mechanism under the seat.

When you get the seat out turn it upside down and spray with WD40, do this with all the other emovable seats.

Hello, yes your doing the right thing. The bolts go through the caliper bushings and you have to pull the bolts out while unscrewing. If this doesn't work let me know. Good luck.

Kia Sedona seat stuck


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.
