If your 19 is like my 16 just...

Flip seat bottom forward by pulling strap in front:

Bring headrest all the way down:

And fold down seat flat:

If you're tall and need more legroom for front seat you can remove seat bottom altogether by undoing the two 12mm nuts holding seat to floor. Provided you have a wrench or socket handy. This takes all of 2 minutes.

ok first of all i removed the head rest bc that how i had to do it in the Escape (doesnt really matter i see here) the picture to me doesnt show the seat laying flat, completely (pic 3...looks a little on a angle...right?..it doesnt look even with the other seat......ok ck out the pictures and you can see the gap between the seat that is down and the other which is not

Traxy like always is the man on the forum. Thanks for all your hard work! Once you put a little weight on the seats they will lay flat. As Traxy said I have a wheel chair in mine all the time so I have the seats folded down alot. I ended up removing the bolts from the seat bottom and just "click" them back into place when I need the seats. No problem in over 7000 miles doing it that way. I wish Chevy would just raise the back floor more like on the kia soul to fold flat without having to remove the seat bottoms. It is the only thing I hate about my red line.

Ever think of using M10 wing nuts instead of actual nuts to make removal easier?

ok well thanks, just doesnt look right, when i see pictures of both seats forward, down, they are not completely flat, at a slight angle

Traxy 04-22-2019 11:13 AM

How flat do you need it to be?
