Rear seat

Lowering backrests in the second seat row

Updated 7/23/2018

The second seat row has three individual seats. The backrests can be lowered forward individually.

Warning

Adjust the seat and fix it before driving away. Take care when adjusting the seat. Uncontrolled or careless adjustment can lead to trapping injuries.

Important

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.

Important

The integrated booster cushion* on the centre seat must be lowered before lowering the seat.

The armrest* for the centre seat must be raised before lowering the seat.

Note

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 rear seats may also need to be moved backwards.

Centre seat

To lower the backrest:

Lower the head restraint manually.

Pull the strap located on the centre seat's right-hand side.

Lower the backrest forward until it locks into position. The seat cushion folds down/forward when the backrest is lowered in order to create a flat surface.

To raise the backrest to the upright position:

Pull the strap.

Raise the backrest and release the strap. Slide the backrest until the catch engages.

If necessary, raise the head restraint.

Outer seats

To lower the backrest:

Pull the handle on the side of the seat upwards and hold the handle in the raised position while lowering the backrest.

Make sure that the backrest with head restraint does not come into contact with the front seat when lowered. Lower the backrest forward until it locks into position.

The seat cushion folds down/forward when the backrest is lowered in order to create a flat surface. The head restraint lowers automatically when the rear seat is lowered.

Warning

Make sure the backrests are properly locked after they are lowered.

To raise the backrest to the upright position:

Pull the handle on the side of the seat upwards and hold the handle in the raised position while raising the backrest.

Make sure that the backrest with head restraint does not come into contact with the front seat when raised. Raise the backrest and release the handle.

Slide the backrest until the catch engages.

The head restraint is raised manually.

Warning

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

Warning

The head restraints on the outer seats in the second seat row must always be raised when the third seat row is occupied by passengers.
