Buick Enclave Rear Seats

If I get the buick enclave with a bench second row seat instead of the two captain chairs can I still recline them and slide them back and forth....I mean adjusting them while I'm sitting, not to get to the third row

    The rear bench seat in my 2009 Enclave is ****. The seating position is too low, knees high up in the air, and the seat belt buckle receptor digs into the LR passenger's hip painfully while riding. Should probably have ordered the captain's chairs instead.

Yes? The thing about the Enclave/Acadia/Outlook triplets is that they are all great, but that second row is very uncomfortable. My friend was going to get the Enclave (amazing interior), but went with the Mazda CX-9 instead.

How do i change the rear turn signal bulb on a 2009 buick enclave?

Read the owner manual. Note that 2008 & 2009 manuals have incorrect information. Locate 2010 Enclave on internet. It has correct description and bulb number. Bulb is a 7443, NOT a 3157.

I want to make my 1999 Mercury Villager Sport into a cargo loader, with just the front seats kept and the rest of the back empty. How do I remove the other 3 seats? So far, I can't get any of them to budge...

the middle seats come out easily. There are 2 handles you have to lift up on each of the bucket seats, they are in the front of the seat down by the seat tracks. After you lift them, tilt the seat upward in the front and rotate them backward. Then lift out of the hooks. Each seat is held down by 4 hoks.

The 3rd row seat is not designed to come out xcept by a technician. It does slide forward all the way up to the front seat. It has a sliding seat track.
First, lift the T handle under the seat cushion on the left front side of the seat. This will allow you to lift the seat bottom up all the way to lcok in the full up position.
Then, lift the lever on the same side of the seat and slide the seat forward. It will stop in 4 places.
Rear -Rear
6 inches forward of that.
another two ft to the second row seating position
full frward against the front seats.

Pleae rate as fixya if this helps.
