To fold down the seatback

Ensure that the front seats are far enough forward.

Before moving the bench seat, ensure that no objects are present on the floor and that nothing will obstruct the manoeuvre.

Ensure that no devices are connected to the accessories socket 2.

Place the seat belt in the hook 1 to prevent it from being damaged and lower the rear headrests to the storage position.

Pull lever 3 of the seatback you wish to fold down (on the right or left-hand side of the bench seat), and bring the seatback down.

Check that the rear seat belts are positioned and operating correctly each time the rear bench seat is moved.

To raise the seatback

Before raising the seatback, ensure that no objects (water bottle, tool box, etc.) will prevent it from locking properly and that the seat belt is correctly placed in its hook.

Raise the seatback and click it into position. Check that it is correctly locked.

Use restriction

It is forbidden to drive with a seatback or a front seat folded down when there is a passenger occupying a rear seat.

When moving the rear seats, ensure that nothing obstructs the anchorage points (passenger’s arm or leg, a pet, gravel, cloth, toys, etc.).

For safety reasons, carry out any adjustments when the vehicle is not being driven.

When refitting the seatback, make sure it is correctly locked in place.

If seat covers are fitted, make sure these do not prevent the seatback latch from locking in.

Make sure that the seat belts are positioned correctly.

Reposition the headrests.
