      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. Rear Seat Stuck

    Thanks for the suggestion, but the latch in question is at the top of the rear seat backrest, not the bottom. Phil.
  2. Rear Seat Stuck

    Hi all. I have a Fiesta 1.25 LX 2004 model (54 reg). It has a split folding rear seat. The problem is that the larger section of the backrest has become stuck. The latch will not release, and the handle on top of the seat is has lost all resistance. I guess that the connection between the handle and the latch itself has become broken or dislodged. The smaller portion of the backrest still folds/latches ok. Firstly, is there anywhere I could poke a screwdriver etc to release the latch enabling me to fold the seat? Secondly, any advice would be appreciated regarding getting at the parts of the latch inside the backrest. It is not obvious to me how to do this. Thanks, Phil.
