FOLDING THE REAR SEATS
DO NOT adjust any part of a seat while the vehicle is in motion.
Vehicle movement may cause the unlatched seat to suddenly shift, potentially causing injury.
One or both parts of the split rear seat can be either partially or fully folded to further increase the rear loadspace, using the following instructions:
Remove the loadspace cover (see ‘LOADSPACE COVER*’, page 102).
To release either part of the backrest, lift the lever shown in the inset, and then fold the backrest onto the seat base.
Ensure the outer head restraints are fully lowered, the armrest is stowed and the center head restraint is removed.
To release the seat base, pull the release strap upward (arrowed in illustration). With backrest and seat base released, the assembly can be folded forward as shown.
Ensure the loadspace cover is stowed in the rear passenger seat footwell, under the stowed seat.
It is extremely dangerous to ride in the cargo area. In a collision, anyone riding in this area is more likely to be injured or killed. Do not allow anyone to ride in any area of your vehicle that is not equipped with seats and safety belts. Be sure that everyone in your vehicle is in a seat and using a safety belt properly.
