Question about 2002 GMC Yukon XL

Open Question

I have a 2002 Yukon XL. The second row of seats is 60/40 bench seat. The cable allowing the back part of the bench to release and fold down broke - so I can't fold it down anymore. Any suggestions on where to look to find a do-it-yourself fix? Thanks!

i dont think they were meant to fold down but you should be able to take them out to haul bigger items. some of the vans they make are made that way so that you have to remove the seats rather than fold them down

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

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.

SOURCE: 2003 YUKONXL 2ND SEAT DOES NOT SLIDE ON TRACK,

It sounds like one or more of the release cables came undone from your lever. Lift the lever, inspect all around it, look under the seat where the track is. There should be a small round cable that runs from your handle down to the release. Also there may be a thin wire that runs from the left side to the right side. If you find it and reconnect it you should be golden.
Good Luck!

2005 gmc yukon third row latch #1 stuck


There is a cable that connects the handle to the latch, the cables like to break/stretch, sometimes if you look close at the rear of the seat where it attaches to the floor you can see the latch and manually release it with a long screw driver or similar tool.
Cables are avaiable from GM dealer if thats the problem.

Jus t purchased a used 2003 yukon xl and trying to find out how to fold the 2nd row seat down cannot find a lever on the one side


The passenger side 2nd row release lever is at the lower right corner. On the driver side, there is no release lever, just a pull ******** the center of the seat, that sometimes falls between the seat.

How do i let down the rear seats in 2003 gmc yukon xL


FYI- I'm taking a shot at this one based on my 2003 Montana so take it for what it's worth.
My van seats have a very small level on the drivers side of each seat. Pushing the lever down allows the seats to fold down while pulling the lever up allows them to recline. There is also a small ******** the back side of each seat which when pulled allows them to be folded down.
Hopefully your 2003 Yukon seats are similar to my 2003 Montana seats and this will work for you

Does the back seat of the yukon come out? I can


by the picture it looks like a 2000 to 2004 yukon.
im assuming you are talking about the 3rd row seat?
if so yes it comes out, the instructions are numbered on the seat, 1, 2 3.
if you are talking about the rear seat, inline with the rear doors, they do not come out, only fold down

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.

2003 chevy tahoe 2nd row seating


lower the bottom portion, there will be two black cables. follow them toward the back of the seat, past a black round plate, where they become top and bottom cables. Push down toward the floor board on the bottom cable (my bottom cable is no longer black coated but rather a bare feeling cable wire). When pushing down on the bottom cable, pull the seat forward. As the seat does come forward the headrest will fold back at the same time. Not an easy find for me either, they should just make a release lever, but oh well..... I Hope this helps. Just keep playing around with those two cables until it finally does release.
