I would almost never have more than 3 others in the vehicle at once, so I'm not too worried about it being a 4-seater. Just sounds like even the replacements are garbage, so why go through the trouble?

|63dart||Currently having this same problem with a 2015 Trax I just bought used. Any DIY fixes, besides disabling that center seat belt and making this car a 4-seater? I don't see an obvious way of getting to that seat belt tensioner to make any adjustments or repairs.|

|5457||Same seat, same problem. Forgot to latch the belt before putting the seat down. No amount of pulling straps, or jumping on the seat will release it. It was replaced 14 months ago.|

|Josephdagwan||I had the same problem with my 2015 trax,took it in and the dealer took the seat back apart and replaced the seatbelt mechanism.However, it has happened again and I found that while the belt is jammed and won't release try pulling on the bottom seat strap release,it worked for me.While waiting for an inspection sticker at my local garage/gas station the mechanic came to me to tell me that the belt wasn't releasing,I pulled on the strap and it released immediately.|

|Ysandro Villalba||Wow, I recall receiving one of those letters the year of purchase. I'll make sure to follow your instructions on that folding issue, since I do it quite often now for one reason or another!|

|5457||I needed an oil change anyway so I took it in. The Chevy dealer couldn't get it unstuck, they ordered a new seat belt and I have to take it back Friday. There's a TSB on this... TSB #16-NA-016 - Rear 60% Seatback Locked in Down Position When Folded, Will Not Return to Upright Position. This is a somewhat common problem on other cars too. A tip: Before you fold down the LR seat, buckle the middle belt so it won't lock your seat down.|

You could take the bottom of the seat out, by removing 2 bolts I believe they are 13mm, then it should be easy to get at the backrest.
On my Trax I removed the bottom of the seat on the drivers side it allowed for my seat to go back a few more inches, I needed it for an easier exit.
I miss my mechanical seat power seats are a pain the mechanical seat went back in a second allowing me to get out and in easily.
