Second row (6 seat config) not tilting forward into “cargo mode” any longer).

My apologies if this has been discussed already. I only did a cursory post scan and search. Please feel free to direct me to any other threads on this topic.

Anyway, on a somewhat frequent basis I push my second row all the way forward to put my bicycle in the back. A couple months ago (or so) I noticed that it seemed like the bike didn’t fit quite as well back there (mostly due to the rear hatch not wanting close because it was hitting my bike when it never had before).

Today I actually confirmed this by turning around in the driver seat, holding the upper button down on second row and pulling on it. Sure enough, it moved forward a tiny bit more and also tilted down like it used to.

Has any other 6 (or older, non-folding second row 7 seater) experienced this issue?


Edit: I swear I put a question mark in the title. Sorry!
