GMC Terrain: Split Folding Seatbacks - Rear Seats - Seats and Restraints - GMC Terrain Owner's ManualGMC Terrain: Split Folding Seatbacks

With this feature, either side of the rear seatback can be folded down for more cargo space.

WARNING

If either seatback is not locked, it could move forward in a sudden stop or crash. That could cause injury to the person sitting there. Always push and pull on the seatbacks to be sure they are locked.

A safety belt that is improperly routed, not properly attached, or twisted will not provide the protection needed in a crash. The person wearing the belt could be seriously injured. After raising the rear seatback, always check to be sure that the safety belts are properly routed and attached, and are not twisted.

To fold the seatback down:

Notice: Folding a rear seat with the safety belts still fastened may cause damage to the seat or the safety belts. Always unbuckle the safety belts and return them to their normal stowed position before folding a rear seat.

1. Unbuckle the rear safety belts and place the front seatbacks in the upright position. See Reclining Seatbacks on page 3‑5.

2. Lift the lever on the top of the seatback.

2. Lift the lever on the top of the seatback.

3. Fold the seatback forward. The filler panel behind the seat will fold with the seatback to span the gap between the rear of the seat and the cargo area, creating a flat load floor. Do not lift the filler panel.

Keep the seatback in the upright, locked position when not in use. To recline the seatback:

1. Lift and hold the lever on top of the seatback.

2. Tilt the seatback rearward, then release the lever when the seatback is in the desired position.

To slide the entire seat forward or rearward:

1. Lift and hold the release bar under the front of the seat cushion to unlock the seat.

2. Slide the seat to the desired position.

3. Release the bar.

4. Try to move the seat back and forth to ensure the seat is locked into place.
