8-4-3-1-skladyvanie-sidenya.html Seat folding

The remote lever or the button (only "hatch-back") allow to combine automatically a seat for expansion of a cargo compartment.
When folding backs of seats it is necessary to consider the following:
– if the car costs on descent, backs of a back seat can deviate forward more sharply in comparison with parking on a horizontal platform;
– if the car costs on lifting, backs of a back seat can not develop. If the back does not develop independently after clamp release, pull for the upper edge of a back from salon of the car and lower it down.
Unfasten a zone strap of the seat belt established on the central place of a back seat.
Having checked, whether the back seat is free, open a back elevating door and pull for handles of clamps (handles are located with left and on the right side of a luggage compartment).
The unblocked back of a seat develops forward under a body weight.

The further pressing a back of a seat leads to folding of hinges of a pillow of a seat, and the back of a seat is displaced forward in the bottom dredging.
