My back seat lever got broken any ideas on how to fix this I defiantly need to pay my seat down
Have you tried a screwdriver blade from the cargo area side. The knob just releases the hook. You can probably do that manually.Please help me with the same problem. The knob does not screw back in place and the seat is now locked in upright and I cannot get it unstuck no matter what. How can I release this latch without the use of the adjustment knob to get the back folded down? Desperate!
Thank you for providing the link to the Factory Service Manual. There is some great information in there. I had considered doing what you're suggesting but I don't know if it will work or not. Since the Seatback lock assembly (Thanks to you, I know what it's called) is stuck in the locked position, even if I'm able to get the seat back detached from the bottom, the seat back will then just be flopping around on the striker. Although it will still be stuck, it may help by giving me a better angle of attack if I can swing the seat back around to a different position. Thanks again for the link and for the recommendation.I'm not sure without going outside to look, but you may be able to remove the seatbacks by removing the bottom cushion first in order to access the side bolts. The bottom bolts can be reached from the trunk. Here is a link to the FSM.
