How to repair broken seat latch fiesta?
The cable mechanism consists of two separate bowden cables ( rather like bike brake cables) connected to one nipple at the seat latch end. It's best to remove the seat back from it's base to avoid frustration. Remove seat from car, detach any plastic trims at bottom of back. Be careful not to damage seat tensioner mechanism which can be triggered unless car battery disconnected first, then wait 2 minutes before removing the plug under the seat, press plastic release latch on plug to separate. Seat back angle knob levers off with a couple of screwdrivers. Remove 2 size 50 Torx bolts to separate seat back from base. Seat cover can be released by pulling plastic hook strips apart, not too difficult and gives more space to work on release latches at base of seat back.
Latch handle at top of seat is separate from cable unit. Cable unit has a plastic end which locks into hole in seat interior by 90 degree twist. The visible seat latch handle clips onto this using a plastic latch which can be seen from outer edge of the seat if handle is prised away from the upholstery (remove one long screw on passenger side handle) Press this latch inwards to release the handle from the cable unit. I broke mine not knowing how they were attached ...it cost £18 to replace doh.... Disconnect cable ends from seat latch before attempting to remove handle else cables will hold handle in place. Use a bit of string on old cables to pull new ones into place feeding down from top of seat. Fit new handle to cable before re-attaching cable ends to seat latches, there is not much slack in cable. Note routing of old cables before replacing new ones. Also note how cable ends fit onto latch mechanism.
Repair shops charge £70 upwards for this job which is probably justified by it's fiddly nature. It's not too difficult once you have figured out how all the plastic trims fit together. NOT one of Fords better designs.......
