Hi my name is HAL

 

Is your seat stuck latched to the floor and you cannot tumble it forward?

If this is the case there is a service bulletin on this condition 10-08-50-004.

It requires drilling a hole in the rear trim, then releasing the latch.

The condition is the cable comes loose from the mounting tab. It also requires a new rear seat rim piece to be replaced. There are two repair procedures, here are some pictures to release the latch, you have to push forward on latch to release.

 

Some customers may comment that the third row seat(s) won't release from the floor or tumble forward when using the release lever or pulling the carrying handle. When this condition is present, the seat will be fully latched to the vehicle but will not release. When the release lever is activated to remove the seat, the outboard seat latch will release, but the inboard seat latch will not release. This is not an intermittent condition. Once this occurs in the vehicle, the seat will not tumble or release from the vehicle for removal.

Condition 2

Some customers may comment that the third row seat(s) won't release from the floor or tumble forward when using the release lever or pulling the carrying handle. When this condition is present, the seat will be fully latched to the vehicle but will not release. When the release lever is activated to remove the seat, the outboard and inboard seat latches will not release. This is not an intermittent condition. Once this occurs in the vehicle, the seat will not tumble or release from the vehicle for removal.

Cause 1

This condition may be caused by one of the control cables, located in the lower seat assembly, coming out of its retaining bracket. If this occurs, the outboard seat latch will release but the inboard seat latch will not release.

Cause 2

This condition may be caused by the control cables, located in the lower seat assembly, coming out of their retaining brackets. If this occurs, the outboard and inboard seat latches will not release.
