How do I unlock the third seat so it can fold intothe floor?

Customer Question

How do I unlock the third seat so it can fold intothe floor? The handle that is supposed to disengage the side lock brackets won't release them. The back folds with no problem but I can not get the seat to disengage. Is there a way to release the side brackets other than by usuing the handle at the bottom of the seat?

you need to unbolt and remove the seat from the car

then check the cable where they attach to the bottom of the seat latch .

There is no way to unbolt the third seat. It swivels on a pivot and attaches to the side brackets. or are you talking about unbolting the pivot ball?

The side hinges are what you unbolt to remove the seat. Then remove the assembly.
