How do I use the rear armrest and pass through?

The rear seat of your car is designed with a built-in armrest and cup holder. It folds back into the seat when not in use. If it is in use, the center seat cannot be used (you’ll be limited to carrying two passengers in the rear of the car).

To use the armrest, simply fold it down out of the seat back. To use the pass through:

  1. Slide the knob on the cover downward.

  2. Pull up on the cover.

This will open the pass through allowing access to the trunk from the back seat.
