Manual Reclining Seatbacks

WARNING
You can lose control of the vehicle if you try to adjust a manual driver seat while the vehicle is moving. The sudden movement could startle and confuse you, or make you push a pedal when you do not want to.

Adjust the driver seat only when the vehicle is not moving.

WARNING
If either seatback is not locked, it could move forward in a sudden stop or crash. That could cause injury to the person sitting there.

Always push and pull on the seatbacks to be sure they are locked.

To return the seatback to the upright position:
