Hi all, We have a 2.5 TDI T5 Caravelle with rails in the back into which the seats mount. One of the seats being a 3 seat bench which folds out to form a bed (of sorts!)

Is there any known issues with these bench seats? the locking mechanism is jammed and it took 3 of us plus a pair of mole grips to get it out of the Caravelle (usually just takes two and some brute force!)

Any advice much appreciated.

If you are talking about it being jammed on the runners then have you got the back part of the bench folded down onto the seat part first. Sequence is this-

1. Pull middle hanle out located just under seat pad whilst pulling seat back towards you (having removed parcel shelf from retaining points)
2. Pull lever on the left as you look at it and slide bench to desired position.

Hope this helps!!

Hi, thanks for your reply.

Yes I have the back folded down as I know this is required in order to slide it. But the lever at the bottom is solid can't pull it out, suggesting a jammed mechanism.

Had to remove the underseat tray slides and get a pair of mole grips on the shaft and have one person rotate this as two of us rocked the seat.

Then it gave and we were able to lift the lever and slide the seat.
