    2003 Explorer 60/40 rear seat passenger side (60) seat release handle
    very loose (no resistance). Seat is in up position - can not release it
    to put in down position. Driver side (40) handle works properly and seat
    works properly. Any help will be appreciated.

    2003 60/40 fold down

    Turned out that the plastic threads on handled were stripped. Arkward
    to get off. Haven't found a used replacement yet. For the few times
    I need to put down, simply put a screw driver in slot and use as the
    handle release.

    That's what I'm thinking happened to mine. After all, Ford does make some cheap plastic parts! The visor retainers, need I say more?

    Ill try that out today though, thanks.
