Folding both seatbacks down


Check the position of a front seat before folding a rear seatback. Depending on the position of a front seat, it may not be possible to fold a rear seatback all the way down because it may hit the seatback of the front seat which could scratch or damage the front seat or its pocket. Lower or remove the head restraint on the rear outboard seat if necessary.

NOTE

When you fold down the left seatback, the center seatback folds down at the same time.

Using remote handle*
