Default Rear Passenger seat latch problem

Hi All-
I was hauling some gardening stuff in my 2001 PT Cruiser today, so released my rear seats, and folded them forward. When I went to return their seats to the upright position, the left (driver side) seat returned and latched perfectly.

However, my right (passenger side) seat would not engage with the back locking ring. Taking a look at it, seems the latch that should engage with the silver ring is locked and will not engage.

Suggestions on how to unlock this so it will engage/lock greatly appreciated.

Still love my Phoebe - 2001 Limited, Cranberry Pearl, 101K miles last week. Original owner

JoJo

JoJo, can't you push on the release button to open the catch up so it will latch with the locking ring?

Lightbulb Re: Rear Passenger seat latch problem

Try using a screwdriver inserted where the locking pin would normally be,and push out on the latch mechanism with the screwdriver while pushing the seatback release button...That should work for sure;Unless it's frozen,and in that case use a little WD-40/3-in-1/PB Blaster(lube!) on it and repeat the procedure.

Got it fixed, all. THanks for your suggestions. Ended up that the middle passenger seat belt latch was stuck under the seat. Once I pulled that back up, seat latched perfectly

That'll do it for sure!.....When the 60% rear seat half is not latched/locked into position,the middle seat belt will not go in,or out due to the ALR(it's a safety feature listed in the owners manual.)
