Quick-release Wagon 2nd, 3rd, and 4th row seats.

I was pretty annoyed, as I think many were, that the mechanism to quick release the last row or seats was present on all seats in the rear cabin (minus the jump seat) but for some reason Ford decided the $.50 per handle wasn't warranted.

A lot of folks have suggested using something like a screwdriver to get in there and release the catch. But I really wanted something that was as simple as the pulls on the last row. Heres what I came up with.

I bought a few bucks worth of metal cable. a ferrule and stop set, and a thimble to use as a handle.

Fashioned all that into this:

And hooked it around to the release mechanism. Now I just leave it in there.

It pulls just fine.

Nice, I like that better than my wire ones, and the negligible cost is almost as good (though I had the wire laying around unused anyway).
