Its pretty tough...the headrest comes as a cassette type and a release cable that runs down the back rest of the 3rd row seat.

2nd row head rest stuck and seat with not fold down


If the head rest is down and hasn't been moved in quite a while the guides may be corroded or rusty from moisture. A flat bar or large screwdriver with any sharp edges filed down or taped to avoid upholstery damage may be inserted between the seat back and headrest and rocked up and down like a seesaw near each end of the headrest to get it to move. If it starts to move you can add spacers to keep squeezing the headrest up until it moves more freely. If the headrest is part way up it may be cocked one way and jamming. just give it a whack or two side to side to see if it helps to free it. If you do get it out wipe a little silicone lube on the shafts with a rag to help keep it moving.

2006 Jeep Comander.....second row headrest


I have a dealer with some traditional values.Rang up to ask about booking in - could always cancel if fixed - and he said "lift the fabric at the base of the seat where it meets the backrest. In there there is a cable like a bicycle brake cable. Give it a prod, fold down the back rest and then fold up again. This cable makes the headrest move and sometimes it gets stuck". Well, tried it just now - headrest fixed. Total time to implement fix ~1 minute. Great Dealer! Could have ripped me of for loads of money and I would have never known.

2006 Ford Explorer: Back seat won't fold flat to create flat cargo area. It folds down but not flush.


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.

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.

Third row seats


A little plastic bumper, located on a metal tab on the inside of the bottom seat cushions breaks off. It is supposed to hit the seat back release and allow the back to fold down when you push the bottom cusion in all the way. I finally just bent the metal tab up so it would hit the release and that fixed it. (Look for the broken palstic pieces under the seat cusion area as an indication) The dealer replaced the plastic part several times... a waste of time.
