    Just bought an 05 DC LWB and am loving it, but the small "belt" latch that lets the upper portion of the back seat down is not there. The hole for it is there, but the cloth webbing latch is not there. I tried to use a coat hanger and fish around to get to the latch inside of the seat but could not get it to engage. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to get the seat down? I think if I can get it down, i can get the back of the seat off and fix the latch, but I just don't know if there is any way to get the seat down. BTW it is the passenger side that is missing the latch.

    Thanks in advance!
