WARNING:

WARNING:
A safety belt that is not properly routed through the seat cushion or is twisted will not provide the protection needed in a crash. If the safety belt has not been routed through the seat cushion at all, it will not be there to work for the next passenger.
The person sitting in that position could be badly injured. After reinstalling the seat cushion, always check to be sure that the safety belts are properly routed and are not twisted.

1. Buckle the center passenger position safety belt, then route the safety belts through the proper slots in the seat cushion. Do not let the safety belts get twisted.

2. Slide the rear of the cushion up and under the seatback so the rear-locating guides hook into the wire loops on the back frame.

3. With the seat cushion lowered, push rearward and then press down on the seat cushion until the spring locks on both ends engage.

4. Check to make sure the safety belts are properly routed and that no portion of any safety belt is trapped under the seat. Also make sure the seat cushion is secured.
