I have a 2000 outback wagon and am having problems folding down the back seat. The loop of tape that is used to pull the actual seat forward is not accessible and the seat is locked in place. (folding the seat backs is fine - it is the base that I am having problems with).

Does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks, Graham

As far as I know, the position of that loop didn't change from the 97 that I have to the 2000 (next generation) that you have.

You just have to reach in there with your hand and fish around until you find it. It is slightly off center, to the passenger side in my car. Close to the seat belt buckles.

I had to do the same thing a few years ago. I couldn't recall just how it came loose, what was holding it, where that catch was etc. :lol: I eventually found that "loop".

I hope Thawa doesn't see this and tell you to read to the book. :D

Those loops will fall under the seat, so like commuter says, fish around and you'll find it.
