I-miev rear seat

5275 Views 20 Replies 8 Participants Last post by  DBMandrake
Just taken possession of a 2011 i-Miev to replace our lease Zoe.

It is in excellent condition except for one niggle I would like help with.

The driver's side rear seat will not fold down and previous attempts in the car's past have stripped the release lever.

Does anyone have experience of releasing/fixing a rear seat mechanism?

Many thanks - and excited to join the i-Miev set!

I know this is an old thread… don’t suppose anyone has pics of the seat lever mechanism?
Just stumbled across an old photo I took of the rear seat handle:

Automotive tire Alloy wheel Rim Steering part Motor vehicle

You can see the split that was causing it to slip on the square bar…

I tried gluing the split and squeezing it in a vice while the glue set but that still wasn't enough to make it work properly as the plastic was too stretched and deformed.
