Question about 2006 Kia Sedona
My wife removed the driver side rear seat from a 2006 kia sedona and when she tried to put it back the rear latches engaged before the front release latches and now it is stuck
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. firstname.lastname@example.org
