UMKLAPPEN UND AUFRICHTEN DER RÜCKSITZE

WARNING

Always make sure that objects carried in the vehicle are secured properly. Unsecured items can cause death or serious injury in the event of an impact or sudden manoeuvre.

WARNING

Never allow passengers to travel in the luggage compartment under any circumstances. All vehicle occupants should be seated correctly and wear a seat belt at all times when the vehicle is in motion. Failure to do so could result in serious injury or death in the event of a collision.

WARNING

Make sure the locking mechanism is fully engaged when the seatback is raised. An unsecured seatback may not properly support an occupant during a collision or sudden stop.

WARNING

Make sure the seat belts are correctly routed and not trapped behind the seats when raising the rear seatbacks. An incorrectly routed seat belt may not properly restrain an occupant during a collision or sudden stop.

WARNING

Make sure the head restraints are raised to the correct position before the seats are used by a passenger. The head restraint must be positioned correctly to restrain rearward movement of the head in a collision.

WARNING

Always take note of the safety warnings and labels attached to the rear seats. The labels give advice on safely folding and raising the rear seats. Failure to follow the advice could lead to personal injury.

WARNING

Before folding a rear seat, make sure that the seat is not occupied. Make sure that no other occupant has any part of the body on the seat cushion. Make sure no one reaches into the area of the seat being folded. Pay particular attention when one seat is already folded. Reaching into this area creates a risk of entrapment and serious injury.

WARNING

Beware of trapping fingers when raising and lowering the rear seatbacks.

WARNING

Take care when retrieving items that have fallen down the side, back, front or underneath the seat. Sharp objects may be present in these areas, which could present a risk of injury. Always stop the vehicle before retrieving items.

CAUTION

Before folding the rear seats, make sure that all objects have been removed from the seat being folded.

The rear seatbacks can be folded or raised individually.

To fold a rear seatback:

  1. Fully lower the head restraint. See HINTERE KOPFSTÜTZEN.

  2. Pull the lever and manually lower the seatback.

Levers to release the seatback also located in the luggage compartment.

To lower a rear seatback from the luggage compartment, pull the appropriate release lever. The seatback automatically folds forward.

To return the rear seatback to the fully raised position, manually raise it into position until it locks firmly into the upright position.

The centre rear seatback can be released separately. Press and hold the button to release. Fold the centre rear seatback forward.

NOTES

Do not use the centre rear seatback as an armrest when it is in the lowered position.

To raise the centre rear seatback, manually lift the seatback until it locks firmly into the upright position.

NOTES

The centre rear seat belt incorporates a locking feature. The locking feature prevents the seat belt from becoming pulled in too far when the seatback is folded flat. The feature can be reset after folding the seatback and returning it to the upright position. To do this, extract the webbing until it stops, then return the webbing a small amount. The seat belt then operates as normal.
