Trying to figure out if there is a way to remove the cup holders/middle seat back in the second row of my '12 RAV4. I just want the back to be able to go completely flat and level (for the most part) the only thing intruding is the cup holders....when folded down they aren't level with the two side seats. HELP!! Thanks.

I'm not sure I understand what you're saying. Do you mean that when you fold the seats down, the armrest-cupholder is sticking up too high? When I fold mine down, the seats are flat and the armrest-cupholder assembly is slightly recessed.

Is it the headrest keeping it from going flat? If so the headrest does come off...
No, the middle cup holders fold down flat but not to the same level as the seats when they are folded.
I'm trying to turn the back of my car into a sleeping area for travels but the cupholders can't go down so it makes it a tight space to sleep

I raise the headrest a little on the second row armrest and it does improve the level somewhat.

That's odd, in my 2010, everything is flat back there when folded down. Is a 2012 different?

How about a picture, to show exactly what you mean?

Maybe yours isn't behaving normally, for some reason.
