Reverse this procedure to return the seat to the upright position.

Make sure the seat is securely latched before driving.

When you are not using the fastening strap, store the strap into the slit on the seat-back.

Make sure both outer seat belts are positioned in side of the rear seatbacks.

In the center seating position of the rear seat, be sure the detachable anchor is latched securely before using the seat belt (see next column).

Do not use the dual deck cargo shelf (if equipped) when the seats are folded down or forward.
