Laying the seat down to a bed in a Dodge Conversion van can be done in two different ways. Most vans have a manual lever that needs to be released to lower the seat. Other conversion van packages have an electric switch that will lower the seat automatically. The option is dependent upon the van's specific conversion package.
Locate the manual lever on the side of the seat. The lever will be on the left side of the seat.
Pull the lever by hand. This will release the locking mechanism on the seat.
Pull the back of the seat down. The remainder of the seat will tilt up until it flattens out. The bed will lock in place until you are ready to push it back to a seat.
Pull the lever to release the bed to push it back to a seat.
Tips & Warnings
- Ensure the van is in park and the ignition is turned off.
