if you got buckets which i presume you do.. you have to take the head rests out by pushing in the buttons on the seats, then there is a small tiny strap in the seat itself right in the middle pull up on that then move the hand lever on the side up and it will come down.. make sure to move front row up a lil.. hope this helps

If you have the second row bench seat, (60/40 split) simply pull up on the strap located at the rear of the seat cushions and pull the seat cushions up. Then fold it forward.
Insert the seatbelt buckles into the pockets provided on the driver's side seatback so they will be available when the seats are returned to the upright position.
Pull the seatback forward and fold it down until it is flat.

Make sure the drivers and passengers front seats are far enough forward to allow the seat cushions to fold vertical and the seat back to lie flat.

Reverse the procedure to return the seats to the uprioght position.

This info is found in chapter 1 of the owners manual.

i also have 2nd row buckets in my 05 escalade and all i have to do is pull the strap in the middle of the seat up, fold the back support down and the headrests should automatically flip backward on its hinge (no need to remove them)

That was very helpful! Thank you! I could not figure out how to get those buckets folded down flat. After reading this thread, it was so easy! Now I just need to figure out if the 3rd row of seats can fold flat!

i can tell you right now they don't although they are removable so all you do is pull the numbered levers in order to be able to remove the third row seats and yes the second row seats headrests fold behind he setback when you lower it i know as my 03 has the bucket seats and they do that.

Is it possible to still get help with this information? My 03' bench seat back won't go down. I got the seat part flipped up but the back won't go down!

Are you referring to the third row, or the second row? Also, do you have an ESV, or the short wheelbase?

In my ESV, I know the third row can get stuck in the folded position. You have to jiggle the "1" lever on the far right of the back of the seat while pulling up on the seat back (lever 1 folds the rear bench, 2 flips the seat forward, and pulling on 3 allows you to remove the bench altogether).

If you are referring to the 2nd row, those levers which are used to flip the seat back down are notorious for stripping out. Metal rod in seat on cheap plastic is going to destroy these in quick fashion. You can unscrew the single screw that holds that lever in (it's on the outside of the seat, near the bottom), and stick a flat blade screwdriver there, and try to turn it to see if anything happens.
