How do you fold out to bed the rear seat (94 E-150 Club Wagon)

Hi. I got my 94 E150 Clubwagon van from my dad. It's got a lot of custom stuff in it (he bought it that way used) like nice padding everywhere and custom... I think they're called runner boards on the outside that are bottom of the frame and include (but aren't limited to) the door steps. Dad had told me the back seat folded out into a bed. But me and even a mechanic cannot figure out how. It does look like there is room and it might do that (I had a dodge van prior that did), but I don't know if it's broken, stuck, or if it just doesn't do it at all because it's not made that way (though he assured me it was, go figure). Is there some way I can figure out

a/ how to do it, if it does
b/ whether this seat is even made to do that, and
c/ what criteria to ask a mechanic to look for in a junkyard to try and put one in that does, if this doesn't?

I looked through the manual. I read the tech page in this forum. Couldn't find an answer in either.

Thanks a ton for any assistance.

PJ

PS I hope nobody will tell me to get a new van. I love my old Ford van!! :-)

If it's a manual seat it ain't easy. There's a lever in the middle front that has to be released, seems I recall I had to push back slightly to get it to release. Been a long time though, I had a 95 with the manual rear seat and it took some effort to fold it down.

Get in the van from the rear door, lever is on the right side of the seat below the folding arm rest. Push on lever and that will release the seat back, now back out of the rear cargo area while lifting on the extra panel so the leg will come down and rest on the floor. You can do it from the other side of the seat but i find it easier from the cargo area.
