Default Third row seat stuck

2007 Tahoe LT w/ third row seating. Right side lays flat and then tumbles or can be removed but left side will only lay flat. Feels as if the release mechanism is stuck. I have tried everything but can't get it out. When the seat is in the upright position it feels as if it is loose and I imagine this is why it will not unlock.


Any advice?

I'd say make an appointment at the dealership. Warranty is such an awesome thing to have!

Yeah sounds like something for them to deal with. If I were you I wouldn't try to fix it myself because you might break it. And then what? The dealer will say that you screwed it up.

Sounds like it was not locked in properly to begin with. It won't fold right if it's not right on track. Same thing probably causing it to not unlatch right either.

I have same problem with 2005 Yukon, except mine won't even fold flat. I'm out of warranty, so I would really like to fix it myself if possible. (Also my left 3rd row seat!)

x3.

Happened to me as well. Remove the seat and push it back in. My base was not locked in, did not allow the backrest to come up.

Thanks for the advice. I can't get the base to release either, but I've decided to try leverage on the release for the base (#2) tomorrow and force it.

Pull out the good one, then check the other seats latches. If is not properly latched it won't flip fold up. I have one that is cantankerous at times.
