Rear fold and tumble seat release cable broke, can anyone help?
When i pull the handle to fold my rear seat forward only the pass side releases. The cable that goes to the drivers side latch has come loose where the pivot point is on that side, ive looked and cant find exactly where it has come loose. Does anyone have some pictures or a diagram that would help me?
This also happened to my 05. I called the dealership and the only way you can get the cable is to buy the latch with cables $113.00. I thought I would let you know how I was able to fix it. If you reach under the seat back you can take the seat cover loose and slide it up a few inches. If you move the latch you can see the part working on the good side, you can move the broken one with a flat head screwdriver. I took the seat out and removed the old cable. Pull the end off of the cable that was at the top. I grabbed a cable for a bicycle and pulled the cable out of the cover. I slid the cable back in the cable cover from the seat and put the end back on it. Once you put the cable back in you will need to put a cable clamp on the top of the cable to fasten it to the handle. I found one that i could tighten a screw up on the cable so it could be adjusted. Feed the cable through the handle. With the handle down, pull the cable far enough to release the latch and, tighten the clamp. When I let go of the cable it worked perfect. I'm not much of a writer but, I couldn't find any info on this and, I thought it might help someone else.
