Unlock lower bed?

Beitrag von fleep » 25.09.2017 09:13

Hello,

Apologies for posting in English! 8)

I just purchased a James Cook, 2007 with 60,000 KM. I have exported from Germany to England, and so far, so good!

One question that I need help with is this:

How is the lower bed supposed to release? Once the seat bank is made into a bed (easy enough), however I cannot get the bed to unlock without opening the drawer and moving the handle by the gas ram. This procedure is described in the manual as almost the emergency process. Is there another way to unlock the bed? The manual is only in German and I do not have a translation of it (I have asked Westfalia but they only have the German one).

I hope that someone else has seen this and understands my question.

Thanks,

Phil

Good morning Phil,

the easiest way to fold the lower bed back to become a seat is to apply pressure on the area above the headrest near the release handle. This will take the pressure from the gas ram-lock and the release handle can be easily used to release the lock.
All is shown here around minute 3:

Good luck!

Ah perfect! I had seen that video a while ago but not realised what he was doing. I will try that again and see if it works :D

OK, I tried that but it doesn't work. I assume that this should be rather easy? Is there a cable that may have come loose?
