Folding the backrests in the front seat
The front passenger seat backrest can be folded to a horizontal position to make room for a long load. Fold the backrest as follows:

  • Move the seat as far back as possible.
  • Adjust the backrest to the upright position.
  • Lift the catches on the rear of the backrest.
  • Without releasing the catches, push the backrest forward.

    Front seats (contd)

    Power seat

    Passenger seat: The seat can only be adjusted if the ignition key is in position I, II or if the engine is running.

    Driver's seat: The seat can be adjusted if the ignition key is in position I, II or if the engine is running. It can also be adjusted in the following circumstances:

    1. Within 40 seconds of the ignition key being turned to position 0 or removed from the ignition switch.
    2. After you have unlocked the driver's door with the key or remote control, the driver's seat can be adjusted during a 10 minute period if the door remains open. If the door is closed, the seat can be adjusted for 40 seconds. The ignition key can be in position 0 or not yet inserted in the ignition switch.

    Remote keyless entry system and driver's seat
    The remote control transmitter also controls the electrically operated driver's seat in the following way:

  • Adjust the seat to your preferences.
  • When you leave your vehicle, lock it using the remote control.

    Power seat control panel

    The next time you unlock the driver's door with the same remote control (the one you used to lock the doors with) and open the driver's door, the driver's seat will automatically move to the position in which you left it.

    The seat will move to this position even if someone else has adjusted it since you last unlocked the vehicle with the same remote control.

    NOTE: This feature will work in the same way with all of the remote control transmitters (up to 3) that you use with your vehicle. This feature will not function if you lock your vehicle with the key.

    Seat adjustment
    Adjust the power seat(s) with the two switches at the side of the seat as follows:

    A - Front edge of seat (raise/lower)
    B - Forward - rearward
    C - Rear edge of seat (raise/lower)
    D - Backrest tilt

    NOTE: The power seats have an overload protector that activates if a seat is blocked by any object. If this occurs, switch off the ignition (key in position 0) and wait about 20 seconds before operating the seat again.

    Please refer to the following page for information on programming the memory function in the driver's seat.

    Emergency stop
    If the seat accidentally begins to move, press one of the buttons to stop the seat.

    pg. 57 Interior

    - Movement of the seat can be STOPPED at any time by pressing any button on the power seat control panel.
    - Do not adjust the seat while driving.
    - The seat should be adjusted so that the brake pedal can be depressed fully. In addition, position the seat as far rearward as comfort and control allow.
    - The seat rails on the floor must not be obstructed in any way when the seat is in motion.

    Programming the memory
    Please note that only the driver's seat is equipped with the memory function.
    Three seat positions can be programmed. To program a seat position:

    1. Adjust the seat to the desired position.
    2. Hold down the MEM button.
    3. While holding down the MEM button, press button 1 to program the current position of the seat.

    Buttons 2 and 3 can be programmed in the same way.

    To move the seat to a programmed position, press and hold down button 1, 2 or 3 until the seat moves to the preset position and stops.

    As a safety precaution, the seat will stop automatically if the button is released before the seat has reached the programmed position.
