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.

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?

How flat do you need it to be?
