Default 2nd Row Seat - Won't Fold Up - locked down

I have a 2014. When I try to fold the 2nd row seat back upright from a folded down position, it stops midway, as if hitting a "locked" position. I can lower it back down completely, but only raise it a few inches before it catches again.

We thought it was the middle seat belt causing the problem, but after a few tries, it suddenly folded up on its own. But this continues to happen most times it folds all the way down.

I'm not seeing anything anywhere about this. Before I take it into spend money on having it fixed, I want to make sure it's not a simple fix I can do.

Just to make absolutely clear. The seat begins to lift up smoothly and suddenly you feel it having a very hard hit that prevents it folding any further. As if the seat is locked at that point to go no further. Has the same hard-locked feel when you tug hard on a seat belt and it locks up.

Hi 3dartwork,

Sorry to hear about this! If you decide to visit your local dealership I'd be happy to follow up with them for you if needed. Just PM our page with your VIN and let me know.
