Question about 2003 Honda Pilot

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?

    Thanks for the temporary solution, it worked!

    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.

Rear seat on my Note won't fold down. When I pull the handle up nothing happens. Any ideas?


Are we talking about Nissan Notes here? I have the same problem with my 2006 Note where the larger of the 2 split seats in the rear won't fold down. It doesn't have any side latches or boot straps and yanking it hard doesn't work either. I can't see any options other than complete removal of the whole rear seat assemby.

I can't into my trunk there is something stuck therefore i need to fold down my rear seats and move it but i don't know how to fold them down I trie but i got nowhere


Be sure that your model has fold down rear seats...you should see the seperation around both rear seats...if equipped, the fold down release is located at the top corner of each rear seat...pull the lever up to release...if your model does not have the fold down option...you will need to remove the rear seat...remove the lower cushions first...look on the lower front of the seats for hold down bolts...second you will need to remove the top of the rear seat...hold down bolts are at the bottom of the top cushion...after removing the bolts (one each side) you need to push up on the cushion to remove...this will then allow access to the trunk...find the trunk latch and try to release by twisting the latch cable...Hope this helps...

The straps which allow me to unlock latch to fold down the rear seats are missing. (I had the car detailed some time ago; seems they were not re-installed.) Is there any other way to get the rear seats...


Are you sure they weren't just tucked under the seat? check for the straps - if they are missing you can install a string or a shoelace in place of the strap, making sure to tie it securely to the little hook for the strap. Sometimes you'll need to use a pair of long nose pliers to pull on the strap mount to fold the seats down to give you room to work.

The rear seat backs do not fold down in these trucks, the seat bottom lifts up to gain access to the compartments below but the seat back does not fold down. The only thing you can do is physically remove the rear seats.
