How to Stow and/or Remove Seats in a 2021 Chrysler Pacifica

Inside the 2021 Chrysler Pacifica, there are Stow & Go cargo bins located beneath the floor mats in front of the second-row passenger seats.  This feature provides convenient in-floor storage, as well as the option to stow the seats themselves when more cargo space is needed.

Completely removing the second-row seats from the vehicle is also possible. The video links included here provide a visual reference to accompany the following tasks.

Accessing the cargo bins:

If equipped, the Chrysler Pacifica Stow ‘N Go feature provides convenient, in-floor storage for your cargo, and the option to stow the seats themselves when you need the extra space. You will find a storage bin under the floor mat in front of each second-row seat. You may need to move the front seat forward to fully open the floor panel. Use the manual seat adjustment bar, or the Advance ‘n Return button on the B pillar trim, if equipped.

To open the panel, push the lock rod in, then pull up on the latch handle near the seat. Fold the top half down and let the panel stand fully open. To close the panel, grab the bottom corner and extend it out. Lay the panel flat and push it down until it clicks into position.


Stowing the seat in the cargo bin:

To stow the 2nd row seats, first move the front seat forward. Make sure the second-row armrests are folded up. Open the floor panel and lean it against the front seat. Now, pull the Stow ‘N Go strap on the bottom of the second-row seat and let it fold forward. Guide the seat down into the storage bin and give it an extra push if necessary. Tuck the strap, close the panel, and readjust the front seat as needed.


Un-stowing the seat:

To unstow the seat, move the front seat forward and open the floor panel. Then, pull the strap on the seat and raise it up out of its storage bin. Push back on the seat until it latches into the floor. Fold the seatback into the upright position, pull the headrest up, and close the floor panel.


Adjusting and removing the seat:

You can adjust the second-row quad seats for added comfort.  Or remove them from the vehicle completely to create additional cargo space.

To adjust a second-row seat, pull up on the handle in the lower front of the seat.  Then slide the seat forward or back to its desired position.  When the seat is in position, simply release the handle.  Then, using body pressure, move the seat forward and back to make sure the seat adjusters have latched.

To fold the seat, lift the recliner lever to the full upward position and push the seatback forward until it rests on the seat cushion.

To fully remove a quad seat from the vehicle, you may first need to move the front seat forward.  Use the manual seat adjustment bar or the Advance ‘n Return button on B-pillar trim if equipped.  Move the quad seat all the way back and fold the seatback down into the locked position.

Look for the release strap on the front, near the floor.  Pull the release strap to release the rear latches and tilt the back of the seat forward.  The seat can now be removed from the vehicle.

Grab the front of the seat cushion with one hand and use the other hand to grab the bar on the rear side of the seat cushion for easier removal.

When re-installing the seat, be careful not to pinch or otherwise damage the heated seat connector (if equipped).

With the seat tilted forward, align the seat’s attachments into the detent positions on the floor.  Tilt the seat toward the rear to lock the seat back into its original position.


Accessing the third-row passenger seats:

For easy access to the third-row passenger seats, you have a couple of options.

First, you can fold the second-row seat flat by pulling up on the “recline” lever and making sure the arm rests are folded up.

When you are done, pull the handle again and push the seat back to the upright position.
