I just picked up a used 2006 odyssey for the family and I noticed that the 3rd row seat (wider side) won't latch properly to the floor anchor latches. I check the alignment of the latches and all seems good and tight which led me to believe that there is something wrong with the seat latches themselves. I can make the latches lock properly if I push in the little flip out carpeted latch panel assembly in from its fully protruded position. It would appear that this carpeted latch assembly/carpeted panel protrudes too far forward making the latches "miss" the latch anchors just as the seat is ready to lock down. Is there an adjustment I can make to bring in that flip out panel with the latches?
I yanked off the carpeted panel but I can't anything obvious that I can adjust. I saw on the net that in 2005 there was a TSB for this issue but Honda here in Canada can't seem to find any TSBs related to that matter.
Honda service tech hasn't seen this issue before (according to him) and figures that the degree of how much that latch panel flips out can be adjusted via cables.
Hopefully someone here can help me out with this.
