mine isn't the spring. The cheap plastic piece on the end of the cable broke. Need to find a way to reattach the cable to leg. person posting above failed to mention WHERE he got the less than 100 part to repair. would be very helpful.
I haven't fixed it yet, but I think I over-stretched the spring. After lifting up on the leg of the 3rd Row seat, I noticed the label that said - "Do Not Lift." Oops. Now the legs stick up about 1" when the rear seat is stowed.
I bought new ss cable and replaced the cable myself rather than spend the 100+ to have them fix it. Great difficulty though.
front legs of rear seat stick straight up in the air. Dealer quoted $540 to fix. It has been like this for a year now I want to sell vehicle so I feel it needs to be fixed
New off the lot. Had this same problem. Dealer had to adjust front legs of third row seat.
I have not had this fixed. Mine just happened this past weekend. I had the seat stowed, and when I went to put it back up, it wouldn't latch to the floor. When I laid it back down, the legs stayed up in the air. Now I have to put something on the legs to get them to stay flush with the floor.
My problem was that the legs for the third row seat wouldn't fold down into the rest of the seat assembly. They stick up unless I lay something on them. I looked into getting it fixed but was quoted a $500 repair estimate. They said there was a 'technical' notice out about this, indicating it was a common problem.

third row front legs don't fold into seat when collapsing it. Cable anchor broke. Tried to fix with wire but not possible to pull hard enough to close a 1in gap to spring hook -- wire keeps breaking.

Fold down rear seat the front legs on the seat do not retract and sticking straight up. Must be held down with a plastic cable tie
Legs on the larger rear seat will not fold down. Smaller seat has no problem yet.
Third seat legs stand straight up
Third seat front legs will not retract when seat is lowered. These vans are just junk. I've owned 3 of them now and each time, I promise myself I will not buy another...I am going to a Honda Odyssey.
Small plastic anchor for cable on 3rd row driver side seat's front leg failed.
Fold down legs of 3rd row seat stick up in the air and will not stay down unless weighted down. Do lock when seat is raised to upright position.
Springs on 3rd row "stow-n-go" seats got stretched. Legs won't retract fully when seats are stowed flat.
