  • Rear Seat Locking Mechanism

    I had to move a big box today and had the rear seats folded down.

    Now I’m trying to get it to lock back in place and can’t for the life of me. Tried looking at the manual and didn’t find anything about rear seats in the index.

    How do I lock it back down? I tried to push it hard / slam it back and nothing engages. Still folds down with a simple pull of the seats. The little red tab on top of back deck is still up. After slamming the seat back up, I tried to push the red tab down, but they won’t move at all no matter how hard I press. What am I doing wrong?

    yeah, I’m pretty sure this needs to happen too. so I can live Vicariously through myself. — cab509

    Nothing makes me happier than the fact that your motive is based on spite, revenge, and regret. Well done sir. A tip of the hat to you. — tankdeer

    once you fold down your seat a «red» tab will pop up(on top of your rear seat near headrest). if that tab gets pushed down your seat won’t latch back down. this happened to me before and its super easy to fix. look down where it actually has the latching locks on rear seat. you will have to look inside the black plastic trim piece and there will be small metal piece you can push back up(?) then you will hear a click and that «red» tab will go back up. then you will be able to close your rear seat again.

    it’s hard for me to explain but it happened to me before and it’s actually super easy to fix.

    click on that link and see the picture. its not the same seat but it will do the job. you see the hole on rear seat? that’s where you need to look and look towards the top of the seat. there is a small metal piece that you need to push up to reset.

    Did you say locking mechanisms? On vehicles?

    Not sure if you fixed this, but I had this same issue when I first picked up my S4. I was told by the dealer that the locking mechanism probably broke and it would be at least a grand to get into the seat, inspect/repair it, get someone to sew the seat back up, etc. Yea, right.

    HOWEVER I got a little time to tinker with it a little later, and played around with the catch pin. I moved it forward a little bit and voila, the seat locked right in.
