V70 seat latch jammed

Post by CIK7 » Mon Mar 11, 2019 6:30 pm

Hello! On top of the free (non-running) 98 V70 XC I got, today i went and bought an 01 V70 2.4. Nothing special about it, they sold it as the 2.4T model but oh well. I noticed the rear passenger seatback will NOT fold down. I read a forum on SP about the latch slide not working and getting it replaced. Unfortunately, it is not the latch slide, but the latch itself. It will NOT budge. Its completely jammed. I want to get it working. iPlease help me outhere. i even used a flathead to try slipping directly between the anchor latch and the anchor.
