I know that there is supposed to be a central anchor point for the third row, but I cannot for the life of me find it. Can anybody tell me where it is in relation to the latch that holds the rear door closed? Based on the illustration in the user manual it makes the location look very intuitive, but I am struggling . . . thanks in advance.

Hey! I never knew that! I have a rectangular hard plastic loop on the back of the seat bottom, behind the right hand side seating position. Well, that's my 2000 anyway. Maybe it's a year thing. I have wondered if it is strong enough but IIRC that's what the owner's manual says it's for, unless I have it all horribly wrong.

Yeah, I peeled back the carpet since there was no perf and I have no anchor. No room for it either since the sheetmetal is flat there. A little odd they want to the expense of changing sheetmetal.
