Chrysler Town & Country Front Legs For Third Row Seat Won't Retract
The front legs for the third row bench seat may not retract. Our technicians tells us a new parts kit and/or spring is available to correct this concern.
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. - Visitor
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. - Visitor
I bought new ss cable and replaced the cable myself rather than spend the 100+ to have them fix it. Great difficulty though. - Visitor

New off the lot. Had this same problem. Dealer had to adjust front legs of third row seat. - Visitor
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. - Visitor
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. - Visitor
