Sometimes you have to give them a good shove to get them to latch. Also check the release handle (but you did that already...).turbulence said:i unlocked one of my rear seats to put it down while i had something long in my trunk. now, the seat won't lock. wtf? is there a trick? the lever in the trunk is not stuck open or anything. everytime i go to put the seat up, it just doesn't lock.
Common sense, perhaps, but the original poster is having trouble getting it to latch. For people that have children in the back seat, an unlatched seat could pose a big safety concern. Additionally, if the seats are unlatched and they tilt forward while you are driving, stuff in the trunk can enter the passenger cabin and distract the driver and such. Years ago, cars didn't have the "Door Ajar" warnings. Now they're standard on a lot of vehicles.JamaicanGanja said:i guess once again my 'common sense' approach to the way things works is proven wrong by a car designer.... thx for the heads up vic
