Back seat behind drivers seat stuck down

My wife put the second row seats down in the back to move some furniture and now we cant get the seat to stand back up. The seat bottom cushion is flipped forward and the back cushion is laying flat forward. Ive looked all over and cannot find anything holding it down. Anyone else ever have this issue?

push down on the seat momentarily when you pull on the lever on the side.

Mine started doing this about a year ago. You just have to force it up; use both hands and have someone pull up on the lever for you.

Mine would get stuck after dropping it down, and backing up the passenger/driver seat into it.had to push the front seat forward and press the seat bottom (upright) forward and pull the seat back up, and hard.

Two hands necessary for me too. Don't do it when it's wet out. If you slip and fall out of the truck . . . All of Walmart / the culdusac will know you aren't the fullest bottle of blinker fluid.

My 2001 center seats on both sides will jam in the down position. Even if if the front seat is moved forward to relieve the back pressure on down seat, the seat bottom alone can exert enough pressure to prevent the seat from coming up. I finally figured out to stand behind the seat, grab the velcro hold-down strap to pull the seat up and at the same time push the seat bottom forward to relieve the pressure. Works every time for me.
