Seatback keeps popping off

The plastic on the back of the driver seat keeps popping off. Just wondering if anyone knows an easy fix, the dealer is quite a drive and it's hard to find time to get there.

Re: Seatback keeps popping off

I have figured out, that if you push up on the plastic seat back from the bottom and push it towards the roof, this seems to help keep it in place. I was able to move mine up about a 1/4 inch and it is staying in place now.

Do you have a part number? I still have issues with my seat back also.

Re: Seatback keeps popping off

I just bought a 2011 Laredo 4x4 and I'm having the same issue with the seat backs. An item number for the redesigned one would be great, I will be taking it to the dealer this weekend if not sooner.

Re: Seatback keeps popping off

There is a TSB for the dealer techs to replace the internal clips to the seatbacks. Mine came out and I thought it was from my daughter pulling on it but the clips were the problem and quickly fixed at the dealer. Call the dealer ahead of time and tell them the seatbacks are pulling out and they will order some clips. My dealer says they're on national backorder and I had to wait two weeks before they got them in. My seatbacks were NOT replaced, just the internal clips.
