WARNING:
● When making a luggage area, never arrange the seats while the vehicle is being driven or is on an incline. The seats could move unexpectedly or more than required and cause a serious accident.

CAUTION:
● Do not stack luggage in the vehicle higher than the seatback height. Also, firmly secure the luggage. Serious accidents could result due to unrestrained objects entering the passenger compartment during sudden braking.
● Be careful not to catch your hands or feet when arranging the seat. Personal injury could result.

To collapse the second seat

The second seat can be collapsed automatically with the second seat lever or the luggage area switch. On vehicles with a third seat, the same operation can be performed with the second seat lock release belt.

NOTE:
● On vehicles with a third seat, collapse the second seat to get on or off the third seat. Refer to “Accessing the underfloor- stowable third seat” on page 2-13.
● The seatbacks can be moved one side at a time.

To collapse

1. Lower the head restraints of the second seat to the lowest position. Refer to “Head restraints: To adjust height” on page 2-22. 2. Use the second seat lever (A), the luggage area switch (B) or the second seat lock release belt (C).

WARNING:
● When folding the seatbacks forward from behind, an adult should perform the operation, making sure there is no one in the second seat. The seatback could fall forward suddenly and trap the person between it and the seat cushion, causing a serious injury. It is difficult to see the second seat from behind, so be especially careful of small children.

CAUTION:
● The exhaust pipe is still hot for a while after stopping the engine, so be sure not to touch it.
● Do not let people sit on the held seats, and do not place luggage on them. The installation fitting of the seat could be deformed, making it impossible to secure the seat to the vehicle.

NOTE:
● Always store the buckles in the second seat cushion slits before folding the seatbacks forward. If the seatback is folded forward while the buckles are not stored, it could damage the seat (refer to “Second and third seat belt storage” on page 2-38).
