My 2nd row 40/60 bench seat won't pull up!

Asked by Jan 20, 2012 at 02:32 AM about the 2008 Chevrolet Suburban

Question type: Car Customization

I pulled the lever, the seat went down and now I can't get it to go back up. I can pull the lever all the way and the whole seat lifts, but the back portion WILL NOT move! This is the 60% side (behind the driver seat) Any ideas?

Does your seats have the electronic "push button?" If so, sometimes the seats gets "hung" and if you push the button and let it go throught the complete cycle it will correct itself. If you do not have the button and it's manual, do you have anything in the floorboard that may be obstructiing the seat from completely going forward? If so, try to clear the area and then try repositioning. Hope this helps and makes sense...good luck!

Make sure that your THIRD row seats are not folded and tumbled forward when you try to pull up second row seats. This worked for me.
