Chevrolet Repair Questions? Ask a Chevy Mechanic for Answers ASAP
how do i release the back seat of a 2005 chevrolet silverado pickup truck? i can take bottom of seat and pull it forward, but the back part of the seat will not release, on left side, i need to access that area behind the back part of the seat to get to a set of house keys and a first aid kit. please help. the right side bottom will lift up and the
back of the seat will tilt forward ok. i have gone thru the same procedure in the past to access the left side of back seat--(tilt the bottom of the seat forward first then pull the back part of the back forward without any problem) now it will not
pull forward so that i can access that small space between the back of the back
seat and the back of the cab. (can do that on right side of crew cab truck--but
at moment cannot access the right side of the back seat. please help.. it is almost
98* out here and i need to get my kids inside out of this heat and into bed.
please help asap. thank you
the 2005 chev.silverado crew cab has a total of 4 full size doors, they open just like
any normal door handle punch and open.
the seat is a bench seat that 3 people can ride in comfortably back there (possibly
4-just never had to have 4 back there.
the bench seat splits both in the seat part and in the back part.
1/4 split bottom seat and back part on the right hand side, 3/4 split of bottom seat
and back part on the left hand side. (the manual said left side will not fold down
if locked or if release is set wrong--but the manual is very vague, unclear as to how
to unlock the back part or reset the release or to throw the release) hope this helps.
Ok so it looks like you need to pull on the strap at the rear of the seat cushion to move the bottom part of the seat outward (it would be a good idea to move the front seats in the most forward position). Then it sounds like the seat back is suppose to move forward and lay flat. Please let me know how it is going and reply if this is not working?
yes head rest is completely lowered, and f.seat all the way forward. yes.
and front floor area in front of rear seat clear of obstructions yes to that also. nothing
on floor except floor mats covering carpet nothing tall or in the way at all.
