How do I manually adjust the front seats?

The manual front seats can be adjusted in two or three ways, depending on how yours are equipped: 1. To move the seats horizontally, pull up on the lever that is located below the front of each seat. While pulling up on this lever, move the seat forward or backward to the desired position, then release the lever. 2. To recline the seatback, lift up on the recline lever, which is on the outboard side of the seat. While holding this lever up, move the seatback into the desired position, then release the lever. 3. If equipped, you can also change the height of the seat with the seat lifter lever, which is located on the outboard side of the seat, in front of the recline lever. Lift up on this lever to raise the seat height, or press down on the lever to lower the seat height. Tips After adjusting the seats, try to move them, to make sure that they are securely locked into place.
