    I know this should be in the Suburban forum, and it is, but I know this topic gets a lot more traffic so I am putting it here as well.
    The third seat in my '89 Suburban will not latch. I have tried everything that I can think of, no luck. The only thing that I can see that may be holding the seat up is the bolts that hold the shoulder belts in place, but that can't be, can it? Factory belts? Has anyone else ever had this problem? Help! My kids love to sit back there and I won't let thim until I figure this out.

    Lots of times a lot of crap gets into the pockets where the seat latches. Remove the seat and clean out the pockets and try again.

    Thanks for the advice ken. I cleaned out the seat latches, but that is not the problem. The latches lack about 1/2" from going far enough down to latch.
