folding down rear seats

Does anybody know if you can fold the rear seats down all the way? They stick up at about 30 degree angle because of the back cushion hitting the bottom seat cushion. Is this normal? Is there a way to make it fold flatter?
Thank you
Roy

do you have the part you sit on in the rear folded up? or are you just putting the backrest part down? cause if you do both, and move the front seats up slightly, the rears fold down flat..there are little tabs to pull up on in the crack between the seat bottom and seat back...of you need pics let me know..

I'm also getting worried that the rear A/C knob on the back of the front-center console is going to eventually poke a hole in the rear cushion with they are folded down. Every time I put the cushions back in the normal position, there is a deep imprint of the fan control knob.

I don't think so, it was a VERY bad design for the rear seats. GM got it right on Tahoe's and burb's, why not our TB's?

My '05 Envoy Denali does the same thing, as did my '03 Envoy SLT. They don't fold flat. Also, beware of the imprint you will get from the items on back of the console.

LOL!!! I found this out at the worst time possible. I went to visit a friend and we stayed out too late so when I dropped him off... I was going to find a hotel only to find that they were all booked. SO... I was going to camp out in the back and got mad that the seats didn't fold all the way down! BOO! That's when I also discovered the lumbar support switch (OUCH) lol!
