Hello Friend:

I use to own The Same Vehicle:

#1) Check the Release Handle to See if its Mounted Good and Tight:

#2) Take a Close look at the While Pulling the Release Handle and Let Go to see if it Returns to the LOCK Position on its on.Its Spring Loaded to Return after you Raise Seat to Lock into Place on its own by the Spring.

#3) Check on Both Sides on Each Step. And Make sure theres nothing under your Rear seat Stopping it from Functioning Properly.

#4) If all thats working and its FREE of Obstructions.Then take a Close Look at the Metal Catches on Both Sides, Check them make sure they are Both Securely Mounted.

#5) Now look to see if they are worn out so much that they Just don't Hold the Back of the Seat up anymore.If they look worn or Bent Replace them.

#6) Also check to make sure that the Pins or Bolt Catches are Tight and not Worn.I found out that if when Raising the Back seat up if you Don't Use the Handle that Releases it it Will Eventually Wear or Bend the Hook like Catches and the Stationary Locking Pin out.

This should get your Seat problem Solved just Check each Function of the Back Seat Catches as Described above.

The rear drivers side passenger seat in my Mercedes 2004 ml350 is stuck down...how do get it to come back up. very little room to work


Not an easy task. You likely have one of 2 problems. If center seat belt is in the seat that is down, it may be locked. If so, you need to remove the seat back cover then the seat belt retractor. You can then position the seat belt retractor upright (how it sits when the seat is up) and pull the seat belt out making slack to raise the seat. This only happens if the either the stop on the seat belt is broken or the seat belt guide on the seat back is broken. If that's not the problem, you likely have a release cable that has come loose under the seat. If you look at the half that works, you can determine what you need to move on the locked seat and try to get to it with a long tin screwdriver or similar implement.

On my extended cab, the front passenger seat will not slide all the way back to the lock position


There's probably something in the way. Get under and behind the seat with a flashlight and check the back end of the rails to see if something is there.

I have a 99 Silverado and the passenger side seat back will not lock back into the upright position. Locks fine into reclining positions. What could be the problem?


i had this problem on my 96 chevy, basically theres a set of ratcheting gears that lock the seat in place in the various positions. sometimes over time or due to abuse one side or the other gets stripped out and the seat will no longer lock into place. i found a ripped up seat on Craigslist that was in a part out truck and bought it cheap then took both seats in the an upholstery shop, between the junked out seat (15 bucks) and the labor at the shop (50bucks) it cost me 65 bucks to fix, hope this helps

Driver side seat back is loose


Sounds like your latch is broken. You can replace the latch, it is spring loaded .Once you remove the trim around the latch and pull the seat cover up you can gain access to the bolts. You will need a torx bit ,I believe a t40 not sure. 13mm and 15mm socket.

Rear seat tumbled forward for more room in back and seat belt jamed. now back seat can not go back into position.


To fix that scenario, I have to get to the bolts anchoring the seat belt which can be found under the rear seat. Which a socket wrench, remove the bolt freeing the seatbelt to allow you room to release the lock to pull the belt out from the top of the back seat. You may now push the back seat into its upright position and then refasten the seatbelts with the bolt to it's former position under the back seat.

When I in later times need to lower the back seat, I will either loop the seatbelt around the head rest or tie two belts together allowing for slack in case the belt tightens again when trying to move the seat back to its original position.

.....Very frustrating!!!
