How do you move the frot seats to get into the back? The seats will slide forward and tilt backward but will not tilt forward or tip to allow you to get into back jumper seats.

There is usually another handle to release the seat to get in the back.

Look around on the side of the seat & on the backside. It will be somewhere.....

Also it may only have access thru the passenger side....

Thanks for responding. There are 3 handles. One to slide seat froward and back. Seems to be working ok. Lever on outside of seat to push back of seat down flat or back to 90 degree upright. And a round kob to adjust lumbar. Seat back will not come forward and seat can not slide any more forward. Both seats perform equally. So I am concluding something is broken or they just are designed to only let a small child slip through to the back.

I'll have to look at one next time one comes in.

From what you've posted it sounds like you are missing the release handle. The 2 seat adjusters usually won't do it or the lumbar adjuster.

Concentrate your search on the right side.... Get down low & look at the back track. I've seen some releases that are just tiny black metal handles on the bottom of the seat, real easy to miss if you didn't know it was there...
