To fold down the seatback

Ensure that the front seats are far enough forward.

Lower the headrests fully.

Pull the vane 1 and lower the seatback A.

Before folding down any rear seat, fasten the seat belt of the seat concerned into the appropriate catch. This will prevent the seat belt becoming trapped when the seat is returned to its position to use.

In all cases, check that the seat belts are operating correctly.

To replace the seatback, proceed in the reverse order to removal.

Raise the seatback again until it reaches the locking joint of the seatback. Be careful not to jam the safety strap between the backrest and the parcel shelf.

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.
