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?

I'm going to do this tomorrow. thanks for the tutorial. I need a flat floor to haul a load of stuff I am going to fetch tomorrow. I am wondering if I can fold the drivers side seat down and still scrunch my 6' 5" 300lb self in the drivers position. Too bad the wide seat back isn't on the drivers side. I could get away with a 2/3rds flat cargo area. and still have an all-the-way-back drivers seat.


Hey, come to think of it the Trax is based on a European car. Mokka or some such. Was that right hand drive? Woulda worked out then.

My 2015 Trax has had the back seats lock down or FREEZE flat, 3 times...first time the repair was under warranty...second time was told "not under warranty because it is a seat belt issue"..third time..right after dealer/mechanic fixed it..then tried it, it froze flat. When I finally got to pick it up, they told me.."just don't fold the seats down"..the time between "issues" is only about 5 or 6 tries of laying the seats down..the reason I bought the car was because I could fold it flat...(not gonna mention the latch on the hatch will sometimes stick and the rear end won't close..and the clock keeps CRAZY time..I carry a $7 watch from Walmart to have the time..) grrrr...

Seats lay flat enough for my needs, shocked the guy at Lowe's when we put a new stove, still in the box, right in the back without a problem.
