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.

    my apologies, i thought you meant second row seats. The third row acts very similar. Make sure head rests are collapsed in and the seat path is clear of shoes etc. Pull that back lever and it should fold flat, If not there is something blocking the path of the seat.

    Appreciate your help. The problem is #3. There is no lever in plain sight on the back of the seat. Looks like the lever was not a standard feature.

Rear seat does not fold down when I push button. Can I manually fold down?


Give the button area a good smack! The mechanism is probably just stuck in place. Try rocking the seat back and forward while pushing it as well. It sounds simplistic, but usually does the job.

Fold of rear back seat


To fold the seats flat you need to lift the seat portion upwards so that it sits vertical behind the driver's seat and then remove the headrests on the rear seats. Then use the large button to release the seat rest portion and drop it into the cavity created by lifting the seat vertical.

I just bought a 2006 Ford Explorer - Eddie Bauer. I am trying to locate the 5-digit factory code for the keypad entry. I really do not want to have to take the car back to the dealer. Thanks for any clue...


The Code to your door keypad is located inside the rear storage area where your jack is stored. Its kind of hard to get to but its on the module in front of your jack on the backside on a sticker. Fold down the back seat. Open the storage compartment on the driver's side of your Explorer. Using a flashlight, look at the plastic cover hidden in the compartment above the jack. There are 5 large numbers. This is your code. It does not have a label telling you what the number is. Try it and it should work.

God Bless and Good luck!

How do you remove the rear seat out of a 2001 Ford Excursion


If you are talking about the third row seat, the first step is to fold the seat down. Pull the lever behind the passenger side of the third row seat and fold the seat down. Then, from the cargo area, raise the bar located directly behind the third row seat and lift the seat forward. The seat should now be detached from the car and can be removed. When you reinstall the seat, be sure to secure the seat properly so passengers do not get injured in a sudden vehicle maneuver. This should help you to fix your problem. Contact me at FixYa if you have any further questions.
