A flap in the backrest, located to the rear of the armrest, facilitates the carrying of long objects.

Ensure that the objects are well secured and that they do not impede the operation of the gear lever.

Folding benchseat

Folding benchseat

The benchseat can either be totally or partially folded (1/3-2/3).

To fold the rear left or right hand seat, always start with the seat cushion, never the backrest (risk of damage):

Move the front seat(s) forward if necessary.

Place the head restraints in their lowest position or remove them if necessary.

Check that the seat belt is correctly positioned by the side of the backrest.

Ensure that you fasten the side seat belts into their buckles (the central seat belt should not be fastened).

Lift up the front of seat cushion 1.

Move seat cushion 1 against the front seat(s).

Pull control 3 forwards to unlock the backrest 2.

Move the backrest 2.

Pinch the seat cushion fixings to remove them from their fasteners.

When repositioning:

Fold the backrest 2 back up and lock it into place (the red light on button 3 should go out).

Fold up the seat cushion 1.

Replace the head restraints if you had removed them.

Ensure that the front and rear backrests are correctly locked in place.

The red light on button 3 should no longer be visible - if not, push the seat

The red light on button 3 should no longer be visible - if not, push the seat all the way back.

Be careful not to trap the seat belt and to correctly buckle each belt, before each operation of moving the backrest. This operation allows you to fold the backrests back up with their seat belts and buckles ready for use by rear passengers.
