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.

Notice:
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.
