To fold down the seatback

Before moving the bench seat, make sure the front seats are pushed forward enough, that the rear seat belts are unfastened and that nothing will obstruct the manoeuvre.

Lower the rear headrests to storage position.

Pull lever 1 of the seatback you wish to fold down (on the right or left-hand side of the bench seat), and bring the seatback down.

Before folding down any rear seat, fasten the seat belt buckle of the seat concerned into its corresponding catch.

This will prevent the seat belt becoming trapped when the seat is returned to its position for use.

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

The configuration of the two-seat bench with the small seatback A pulled down, does not allow the central seat to be used as it would be impossible to buckle the seat belt (belt buckles inaccessible).

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

When moving the rear bench seat, make sure the bench seat anchorage points are clean (they should be free from grit, cloths etc.).

To raise the seatback

Before raising the seatback, make sure there are no objects (water bottle, tool box etc.) which will prevent it from locking properly.

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

Max. weight: 300 kg, evenly distributed.

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

If using seat covers, make sure they do not prevent the seatback and seat base latches from locking in. Ensure that the seat belts and seat belt fasteners are correctly positioned.

Reposition the headrests.

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.

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