    Default Signum centre rear seat will not flip

    Please help,

    The centre rear seat of my car will not flip, it is stuck in the seat position and will not flip over to the centre storage / cup holder bit.

    We have had previous issues which I see documented on here, where the seat back will not go back up, however this element is working fine.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    John

    Hi,

    The seat moves about an inch u[wards when you pull the handle at the front, but that is it, will not go any higher. It seems like something is catching or is stopping it from moving.

    Sounds like something has fallen in there and jammed inside it. Are you able to see the inside, under the seat bit...? Have a look as you lift the flap and it raises as far as it can...

    Will have another look when I get it back from Vx!

    Just had to put it in to try and sort out another issue of the engine cutting out when hot or wont start when hot.

    ****** typical when we are supposed to be going to Scotland at the weekend.

    is it easy enough to remove the rear seat?

    would make sense for it to be something that is stuck, especially with the rubish the kids knock around with in the back of the car.

    Just got to get the engine issue sorted now.

    You need to remove the two main rear seats before you can remove the middle seat.

    Can you do this using normal spanners or is it a case of having to use star drive tools?
