Question type: General

Do the back seats in the car lay down or unlatch in anyway?

5 Answers


It would depend if your car had this option when originally sold. Look at the top back of the rear seats and you should be able to see a latching mechanism if they are so equipped. Often times only one rear seat will fold down, usually the passenger side.

I would say try looking for grey straps or knobs in the trunk, by where the passenger side trunk hinge is located.

I forgot to mention that some Malibu may have rear split folding rear seat and some don't. If there is a split on the rear seatback when you look at it through the trunk, then rear seatback do fold down.

Mine has a split in the backseats, but no levers to make them fold down..

The latches are in the trunk of the fold down on the right side at the top.
