Thread: Can't Unlock Back Seat to Open the Bed

    Default Can't Unlock Back Seat to Open the Bed

    I have a '87 Westfalia. I'm unable to unlock the back seat to lift it up and pull it out into a horizontal bed. The black button underneath the seat that I normally pull out to lift the seat doesn't work. It seems like it is stuck.

    Does anybody have any suggestions as to how I can open it?

    Does the black knob move at all?
    My seat will jamb if its not folded back correctly, the knob will pull but, if I remember correctly the, the hold up arm for the storage are gets caught on something. A couple of forceful pulls on the seat while pulling the knob freed it up.

    I had same problem few years ago. Under the seat, when lifted up, you can see screws holding seat to frame. These had worked loose & allowed seat to move slightly forward preventing black knob from working. Try pushing seat back as you pull knob out. This worked for me. Good luck.
