Question about 2003 Honda Pilot

1 Answer

Rear seat won't fold down (60 part of 60/40 seat)

I have always been able to fold down both parts of the 60/40 rear seats. A few weeks ago, I had both sections folded down and then put them both back up. After that, the 60 part of the seat won't fold over anymore ... I am trying to take the seat apart to see what is wrong but am having a hard time. Anyone know how to fix this?

    My 2003 Pilot has the exact same problem. Unfortunately the solution offered here did not work for me. Any other thoughts?

    Sounds like an issue of defect. I have the same issue for the release latch on my '03 pilot as well. I'll try the double latch thingy as stated to see if it works.

I had the same problem on my '03. The seats would not fold down using the latch release as I had always done. So I tried a combination of pulling up on the side latch AND the top latch and the seat folded down. It really doesn't FIX the problem but circumvents offending  defective part. I will use this method until it doesn't work then I might shell out the $$$$$ to the dealer.

    Latch by passenger door is turned directly by lever. Cable runs through back of seat to center latch. My cable has slipped or something and doesn't pull the center latch. I was able to force turn the center pulley that the cable should be turning. In hindsight, there's a screwdriver slot in the end of the shaft, but the plastic cover blocks it. I'd bend the plastic out of the way as much as possible and try to get a screwdriver on the end of the pivot shaft. Once I got it down, I drilled a hole in the plastic cover to easily get access to the end of the shaft. Still need to solve the loose cable problem, but at least I can get the seat down.

How do i get the back seats down to gain access to the trunk? It wont open


1. You either have a section of rear seat that folds down or you don't. Most cars do and those vehicles will have a manual tab just behind the seat that is connected to a cable that will release the trunk lock unless the lock is broken. So check the top of your rear seat sections for release buttons that enable a section of seat to be folded down. Then look just inside the opening for the manual cable release.

2. If you have a car with no section of rear seat that can be folded down, you will have to unbolt the rear seat to get access to the trunk. You need to remove the bottom section of the seat first. This will just pull up from the front and you can remove it from the car. Then you should be able to access the bolts that hold the upright section of seat in place.

How can i open the trunk from inside a running buick regal 2011?


If that model has a fold down section of the rear seat back, the manufacturer normally installs an accessible manual boot release tab in the vicinity of the fold down seat section just inside the trunk compartment.

If there is no fold down seat in that model or no manual boot release inside the trunk area, the rear seat needs to be removed so that you can access the trunk from inside the car.

There is a manual pull boot release you can use to open the boot. It is normally located just inside the boot behind the back seat. Your car has a fold down section on the rear seat back. Fold down the rear section of the back seat and you will see the manual release.
