Split-folding rear seatbacks
One or both rear seatbacks can be folded down to provide additional cargo space.
To lower the seatback(s), pull the release handle(s) located inside the trunk.
Fold the seatback(s) down.
Note: If the front seats interfere with folding the seatbacks, you will need to remove the rear seat head restraints. To remove the rear seat head restraints, see removal instructions under Second-row adjustable head restraints in this chapter.
WARNING: Before returning the seatback to its original position, make sure that cargo or any objects are not trapped behind the seatback. After returning the seatback to its original position, pull on the seatback to ensure that it has fully latched. An unlatched seat may become dangerous in the event of a sudden stop or collision.
Make sure that the safety belt for the rear center passenger is properly routed over the rear seatback.
