Folding the Seatback
Either side of the seatback can be folded down for more cargo space.
Fold a seatback only when the vehicle is not moving.
Folding a rear seat with the safety belts still fastened may cause damage to the seat or the safety belts. Always unbuckle the safety belts and return them to their normal stowed position before folding a rear seat.
To fold a seatback down:
See “Head Restraint Removal and Reinstallation” under Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH System) on page 3-40.
Tilt the seat cushion forward toward the front of the vehicle.
Raising the Seatback
If either seatback is not locked, it could move forward in a sudden stop or crash. That could cause injury to the person sitting there.
Always push and pull on the seatbacks to be sure they are locked.
A safety belt that is improperly routed, not properly attached, or twisted will not provide the protection needed in a crash. The person wearing the belt could be seriously injured. After raising the rear seatback, always check to be sure that the safety belts are properly routed and attached, and are not twisted.
With head restraints that are not installed and adjusted properly, there is a greater chance that occupants will suffer a neck/ spinal injury in a crash. Do not drive until the head restraints for all occupants are installed and adjusted properly.
To return the rear seats to the normal seating position:
The safety belt should not cross the seatback locking mechanism when raising the seatback.
If added cargo space is not needed, the seatbacks should be kept in the upright, locked position
