Easy tilt seat pull handle stuck

I have a 2017 gas-model Chrysler Pacifica. The second row seats are the easy tilt model. They have a pull handle on the back of the shoulder area that is supposed to allow the seat to release and tilt forward for easy access to the back seat. On the passenger side, the pull handle is completely stuck. I can pull on the handle, and it doesn't move forward at all. (It worked fine for several months, but not now). If I pull on it any harder, I feel like it will break. It's like the cable is caught, but I have no idea where to start looking to assess the problem. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance!

If your Pacifica is still under warranty, take it to the dealership. I know its time consuming, but I don't remember seeing that problem coming up on the Forum before. Maybe another member can come up with some diagrams.

Check the bottom front outside corner where it hinges to the floor. The release cable is attached via a plastic cap which can break. Same thing happened to me and I was able to re-secure it temporarily until I can get around to getting into the dealer for a more permanent fix. Wish I had a picture to show you but the attached gives you an idea of where to look.

I had the strap on the 2nd row passenger seat that wouldn't release the seat all the way for it to fold into the floor.

You had to slap the seat back with your hand hard several times for it to completely collapse.

A quick trip to the dealer when they did one of the recalls and it works like new.....

I have the best dealer for service.... Myrtle Beach Chrysler Jeep.
