The Ford Fiesta is equipped with folding rear seats. This is very convenient as you can easily increase your boot space when it is needed. The seat is locked into place and released by what is known as a seat catch. Depending on your model of Fiesta, the seat catch has two different mechanisms. In the event that your seat catch breaks, your back seat will not lock into place. You can remove and replace the catch by following the instructions below.
