  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.
