To fold down the seatback

Ensure that the front seats are far enough forward.

Before folding down a seat back, lower the headrests as far as possible.

Before folding down any side 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.

Pull the vane 1 and lower the seatback A.

Note: for safety reasons, the seatback A is equipped with a retaining system. You may experience resistance when handling.

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.

Check the operation of the seat belt.

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

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.
