Reclining the seatback (Outback)
To prevent the passenger from sliding under the seatbelt in the event of a collision, always put the seatback in the upright position while the vehicle is in motion.
If the vehicle is equipped with a cargo area cover, observe the following precautions.
● Be careful not to pinch your hand between the headrest and the cargo area cover when you recline the rear seat.
● Move the front cover of the cargo area cover backward so that the cover is not damaged by the reclined seatback. Refer to “Cargo area cover” F6-15.
Pull the lever and adjust the seatback to the desired position.
Then release the lever and make sure the seatback is securely locked into place.
