    I have an 89 Sierra reg cab. The bench seat does not fold forward.
    If I recall correctly from my 88 reg cab in the 90's, there is no release you just have to wiggle it to get it
    to fold. I have tried a lot of wiggling an the Sierra seat will not fold.
    Does these commonly break or is it something that needs to be cleaned and lubed occasionally?
    I just took the seat out to dye the carpet, I have not looked but assume the release is only on the driver's side.

    if it truly does not tip fwd, it might be the front seat out a crew cab or maybe a w/t suburban model?

    Does it move forward at all? Like attempt to come forward or act like it is fixed? My 95 quit working recently, I replaced it with a rear bench seat from a crew cab.

    I could get it to fold but it would take forever, it was well worn so I saw it as a excuse to replace it.

    It wiggles a little, acts like a latch not releasing.
    it is the correct seat, known the truck since new.
