Q: How do I manually recline the front seats?

asked by on December 11, 2015

How do I manually recline the front seats?

The manual reclining lever is located on the outside of the driver and passenger seats. To recline, pull the lever upward, and lean backwards until the seat is in your desired setting. To return the seat upright, pull the lever upward and lean forward until the seat is in the right location.

If your vehicle comes equipped with manually reclining rear seats, then they are operated the same way.
