I cant figure out why the rear seat will not latch back. There are no obstructions and the pull cord returns when you pull it. It wont lock in place. Anyone else experience this?

Are you holding the pull strap when you push the seat back to latch it? If so, don't do that. I've seen a couple people do that on youtube videos and it didn't latch until they released the strap.

I had a difficult time with mine and finally got latched back by manually releasing the latch with a screwdriver, reopening it by hand and using a quick and forceful action to reseat the seat-back.

I’ve had a similar issue. Working the pull loop back and forth eventually moves the latch enough to close it. Going to have Ford look at it on my first service.

When I picked mine up it wasn't latched and we couldn't get it to latch.

After a few tries the only way we could get it to latch was to put pressure on it by sitting in the seat and leaning back.

Saw the same issue on a Lariat model at the dealer.

Is everyone pushing on the passenger side as recommended by the owners manual as shown here?
