In Topic: Adjusting the back seats

Hi C-maxxer - thanks for that, I'll have a go with it at the weekend.
I read up on Cmax before I went to look at this, and some articles said steer clear of automatics and 1600s. I hope mine doesn't end up being a pig in a poke.
Everythings OK up to now - my husband wanted me to have something he, and his mother could easily get into and tried his best to make me have a Picasso! We had one before and I hated it, felt like you tilted as you went round corners and had an almost non-existent turning circle.
When I read up on Cmax it said that it for people who wanted a MPV but didn't want to drive one! So thought this would be good for me. It really sticks to the road without a tilt!

Thanks for the help

Ford Lover,

Once you've cleared the middle seat out of the way, just pull the lever on the front corner of the side seat up and at the same time push the seat base diagonally back towards the middle of the car until it clicks.

Getting the seats out is more tricky. tip the seat forward using the lever on the side of the seat. Then lift the bar at the back of the seat to tumble the seat. Then look at the hinge point for a red catch. Push the catch fully forward and then try to lift the seat out. In my car the catch was very stiff the first time I used it. Also beware, the seats are chuffin 'eavy.

Hope your car is more reliable than mine. I certainly aint a Ford lover after a year with my '04 C-Max - and that's having only Fords for 17 years previously.


In Topic: Workshop Manual

I have had my C-max 2 days now - I have been searching the web to try and find a manual or instruction book as mine did not come with one.
I too would like to hear from anyone who can tell me where to get either of these things??
I would like to know the basics of my car - sussed most of it - but you always wonder if you've missed something - plus I like to know about engine etc.
Unfortunately wrote off my beloved Mondeo in December - love the C-max - it has more character. Wanted an MPV, but didn't want to drive one!
