    My buddy just got a 2001 GMC Sierra with the Front split bench seat.

    Any idea if that center seat folds down into and armrest?

    Is there a latch that unlocks the upright position?

    Thanks.

    NOpe it should just pull down.. it sounds like it may be sticky...

    54,000 original miles and showroom clean interior.

    Is it possible that it is not meant to fold down?

    no it for sure folds down. that was std on all gm trucks. i know there there is a little lock that helps to hold it up however it is supposed to unlock just by pulling on the armrest.. so that may be the problem.

    I had the same seat in my 2000 and its in my 2004. should just pull down. both of mine were storage consoles as well. If by chance it does lock in the up position then a button would either be on top or the side, but mine just pulled down

    My '05 Silverado work truck has the 40-20-40 seat and the center does not fold down...

    my 06 WT reg cab didn't fold down it was straight up. also the 04 and 06 extended cab WT we had at work had the center that didn't fold down.
