Lowering the rear seat backrest


There must be no objects on the rear seat when the backrest is to be folded down. The seat belts must not be connected either. Otherwise there is a risk of damaging the rear seat upholstery.

The triple-section backrest can be folded in different ways.


The front seats may need to be pushed forwards, and/or the backrests adjusted upwards, in order that the rear backrests can be fully folded forward.
  • The left-hand section can be folded separately.
  • The centre section can be folded separately.
  • The right-hand section can only be folded together with the centre section.
  • If the entire backrest is to be folded then the different sections should be folded separately.

When the backrest has been raised, the red indicator should no longer be showing. If it is still showing then the backrest is not locked in place.


Check that the backrests and head restraints in the rear seat are locked properly after being folded up.
