    Welcome aboard!! :salute:

    When I first got my Ex the third row seat wouldn't fold down. What I discovered was there is 2 nylon like cables under the handle that unlock each side of the seatback. The mounting spot for one of them in the handle is broken. Used needle nose to pull it up and the seat folded down!!!

    Hope this helps out! :D:thumbsup:
