Child safety locks


The controls are located on the rear door jams.
A The door cannot be opened from the inside. Normal operation from outside.
B The door lock functions normally.


WARNING! Remember, in the event of an accident, the rear seat passengers cannot open the doors from the inside with the buttons in position A.



Trunk lid


The trunk lock is incorporated in the central locking system. This means that you can either lock or unlock the trunk by means of either of the front doors.
You can also operate the trunk lock directly with the master key even if the vehicle is centrally locked.


The trunk can also be disconnected from the central locking system by turning the key counterclockwise as shown below:
Withdraw the key in the horizontal position.


The trunk is now always locked. The optional folding rear seatback can also be locked from the trunk (see page 3:16). This feature can be used for example, if you lend your car to someone. If you give only the service key to the driver it will not be possible to gain access to the trunk. Please be aware that this setting may preclude access to the spare tire and jack.


To reconnect the lock to the central locking system:
Withdraw the key in the vertical position

pg. 3:16 Folding rear seat (sedan)





Locking levers

Folding rear seat


The rear seat is split into two sections so that each section can be folded independently.

  • Lift the rear seat belts to the fixed section of the backrest. The center seat belt can also be folded across the fixed part of the backrest so that it does not get in the way if the right-hand backrest is folded down (see illustration above).
  • Pull the catch forward and fold the backrest down.
    The two red levers on the rear side of the backrests can be used to bypass the folding mechanism and prevent the backrests from being folded down from inside the car. Push the levers down to lock backrests in the upright position. This function can be used to limit access to the trunk.
  • When folding the backrests up, make sure the seat belts return to their normal positions.


    WARNING! When the backrest is returned to the upright position, check that it is properly locked in place.


    NOTE: If the backrest is folded down for prolonged periods, the seat belt locks could be covered (i.e., with a towel) to help avoid marks on the backrest upholstery.

    pg. 3:17 Folding rear seat (wagon)


    Seat cushion strap Release lever - backrest Hooks fit into holes


    Folding rear seat (wagon)


    The rear seat is split into two sections so that each section can be folded independently.

  • Straighten front seat backrests if they are tilted too far to the rear.
  • Pull the strap to lift the rear seat cushion and swing the cushion up and toward the back of the front seats.
  • The outboard head restraints must be lowered before the backrest is folded down (see inset illustration above):
    1 - pull straight up, 2 - fold forward
  • Push the center head restraint straight down if it has been raised.
  • Move the backrest release lever rearward and fold the backrest down.
  • Check that the hooks under the seat cushions engage the holes on the top edge of the backrest.
    When the backrest is raised, the outboard head restraints must be returned to their normal position.
    The backrest must lock into place. The red lock indicator will not be visible if the seat has locked into place correctly.
    The seat belts must be correctly positioned when the seat is returned to the normal position.


    WARNING! When the rear seat is folded down, do not place heavy objects against the backs of the front seats. This places a severe strain on the folded down backrest of the rear seat. Be sure to secure cargo. Cargo must not be stacked higher than the top of seatbacks. This will reduce the possibility of luggage, etc. becoming projectiles during sudden maneuvers, rapid braking or an accident.
