There might be a short strap in the center of each section where the back and the seat come together. Pull that strap to release and fold the seat aginst the front seat. Then you should seelatches to release the backs and fold them down. Hope this helps
Open the trunk (UK: Boot). While looking at your rear speakers you will see there magnets sticking out of your rear deck lid (UK:Parcel shelf). In the middle of them will be 2 straps. These straps are what you pull to get the seats to fold down. give them a tug and the seats will go down, might be worth giving them a slight push if they havent' been folded down for a while.
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.
If your Grand Am has the split rear folding seat, you can try folding the seat down but using a wire coat hanger. Try to snake the coat hanger through the split in the seat and hook the strap to pull it to be able to fold the seat down to gain access to the trunk. http://www.gaownersclub.com/forum/attachment.php?attachmentid=17492&d=1121049659
As for the trunk being locked. Is it possible the remote lockout was activated? Try a yard stick to
slide the red switch or just crawl in after you folded the seat down and removed all the food. If it's engaged, the remote solenoid will still
activate (you can hear it), but the trunk won't open remotely.
Good luck and keep us posted. Thank you for using fixya
I am going to assume you mean the normal rear seats, not rear facing seats in the very back.
The rear seat folds down. The benches fold up from the back. When they are up you can see how to easily remove them if you want.
When the benches are up the backs fold down. There are levers on the top the slide forward to release them so they can be folded down. Tip the outboard head restraints forward by pulling their straps. The center head restraint has a button behind its right-hand support that you push to allow it to be lowered.
Go into the trunk.
On each side, below the package shelf are two pull straps.
Pull the strap for the side of the seat that you want to fold down.
The one on the left is a 3/4 width seat folded down.
The one on the right is a 1/4 wide seat folded down.
I had the same problem. The dealer wanted $400 to replace the latch. I didn't wnat to pay that much so I looked at it and found that the release strap was twisted and jammed in the mechanism. Here's how I fixed it.
I removed the screw from the lever and removed the lever. I pulled apart the plastic housing. It does not come apart all the way but enough to work on it. Pull the release strap that comes out of the back and pull it clear of the mechanism and straighten it out. slip the lever back on and the seat should fold. Fold it up all the way to make it easier to reassemble. Pull the lever back off and slip the release strap back into the slot and make sure it is not twisted or kinked. Snap the housing back together, put the lever back on, and screw it in. Test it and it should work fine. Hope this helps,
Here is how I fold down the back seat of my 1995 Rodeo. First thing I do is remove the headrests on the back seat. Then I place my knees (and all my weight) on the middle of the seat (bench), and pull on both belts straps. If this is done properly, I will hear each strap release. (sort of a click). As soon as I hear it release, I stand up as best I can while at the same time pulling up the seat. I then manage to step out of the Rodeo while letting the seat fall forward. After that, I am able to drop the other part of the seat into the forward position.
There should be two seat belt clip notches in the seat where the seat belt clips comes out the seat. In those two notches there is also a strap in each notch that doesn't look like it really belongs there. Pull those two straps at the same time and the seat pops up and folds down. The back rest part of the seat will then fold down. Remove the head rest section of the back rest and it will fold all the way down.
