Condition 60% seatback

Some customers may comment that after folding the 60% seatback, it is locked in the down position and will not return to upright.

Cause The cause of the condition may be a broken or missing seat belt button/stop on the rear center seat shoulder belt and/or a broken seat belt bezel.

seat belt bezel (1) and button/stop (2)

When the front seat is all the way back and the rear 60% seatback is lowered, the added weight of the front occupant puts extra pressure on the seat belt bezel (1) and button/stop (2). This may allow the seat belt to fully retract past the stop, and the retractor may lock because there is not enough seat belt slack to unlock the retractor.
