FOLDING AND RAISING THE SLIDING SEATS

When raising the rear seats, make sure that seat belts are correctly routed and not trapped behind the seats. An incorrectly routed seat belt may not properly restrain an occupant during a collision or sudden stop.

The split-fold rear seats can be folded completely to accommodate large loads, or partially to accommodate large loads and still retain seating for passengers.

To fold a second row seatback:
