Contact the dealer for a price estimate on the part. Changing it is fairly simple.

I, myself have been very surprised at times what part costs are. A part that you would expect to be $30 to $40 will go for $150.
If the dealer what's too much for it, contact a local wrecking yard to see if they can obtain the part for you.
Parts like this are seldom repairable by anything but replacement (there are rare occasions though that you can)

2000 chevy suburban 3rd row seat left latch locked right latches didn't lock and now won't do anything. How do I fix it?

These are cable controlled and linked remove the seat and cycle the locks and see if they move together, if not a cable has broken or come unhooked. Most of these seat backs are Val crowed so it may open right up

Volvo XC90 rear middle seat stuck in the down position

It is pretty obvious from the video that the internal mechanism on the release has broken. This will need internal repairs or replacement of the whole seat by Volvo or a mechanic. Sorry :(

Cant open hood volvo 850

This is a common problem on these older Volvos. Try pulling up on the hood (after hitting the hood release in the car) and then push the latch in and then lift up again while pulling the latch out.

The left latches for the 3rd seat in our 2005 Suburban are hooked in, but the right side isn't. The back of the seat is up. We can't budge the number 1 lever to move the back of the seat down, or the...

I really don't think your going to find an answer here. You have something bent ,jammed or some foreign contaminant wedged in it.
You need someone to actually look at it and figure it out. We can give you a bunch of maybe's like I just did but thats about all we can do.

Volvo c70-2004 sun visor Problem: won't stay up and light is continuously on draining battery

usually when the visor break, three things you can do, one is to take it apart( the arm of the visor) slowly and look for a broken plastic part pieces which you can superglue it back together, if the broken plastic peice is not still there and missing then you will have to replace it with the new one. Junkyard or ebay may carry some used. Dealer wont be that expensive either. 3rd, take the lens off and remove the bulb from the visor, this way it wont drain the battery. To hold the visor up you can try to find a velcro tape from auto parts store, by taping one side of the visor and the other top of the roof that way when you fold it up the velcro will stick to one another. this will be a temporary fix.

My rear seat belts have locked with the seat in the down position and i can not put the seat back up

I had a problem like this. The seat belt stop (the small button through the belt) had broken and fallen off. When I tried put the seat up the belt had wound too tight and with no slack wouldn't release. I had to unbolt the bottom end of the seat belt from the floor and raise the seat. While I had the unit off the floor I had slack enough to release the belt and extend it to bolt the floor unit back down. There should be two of these button on the belt. One keeps the belt from rewinding too far and the other one holds the seat belt latch up on the belt. You can buy these buttons from some auto parts stores. You might have to buy a bag full, but they're not expensive. Good luck..
