: Rear seat removal

I know that some of you guys are Cadillac Techs. What's the "trick" to get the rear seat unlatched and up on my new 2010 DTS? On my 2007, I had to take it to the dealer to get it unlatched the first time. After that it came up just as it is supposed to. I have the new Service Manual Set. All it says is to push it back and pull it up. I've pushed and pulled hard enough that I'm afraid of breaking something. Once my 2007 was pulled up the first time, by the dealer, then it was easy. There must be a trick to getting it up that first time. I know where the latches are and how they work, I just can't get either of them loose. Thanks.

No trick. You are not pushing and pulling hard enough. I have always been able to "unlatch" the rear seat on numerous Cadillacs and other cars too.
