How do I fold the rear seats?

The rear seats can be folded down to create extra storage space in the cabin or in the trunk. To fold down the rear seats, follow these steps: 1. Unbuckle the rear seatbelts. 2. Fold the front seats into their upright position. 3. Locate the lever at the top of the seatback. Lift up on the lever. 4. Fold the seatback forward. 5. Repeat steps 3-4 with the other seatback, if you wish. *Tip The filler panel that is behind the seat should fold forward with the seatback to help create a flat floor. Do not attempt to lift the filler panel.
