Folding down the rear seat backrests

Folding down the rear seat backrests  - Rear seats - Seats - Your driving environment - Volvo XC60 Owners Manual - Volvo XC60

The three sections of the rear seat backrest can be folded down in different combinations to make it easier to transport long objects.

Х The left (driver's side) section can be folded down separately.

Х The center section can be folded down separately.

Х The right (passenger's side) section can only be folded down together with the center section.

Х All three sections can be folded down together.

CAUTION To help avoid damage to the upholstery, there should be no objects on the rear seat and the seat belt should not be buckled when the backrest is folded down.

1 Release and lower the center head

1 Release and lower the center head restraint (see page 87) if the center and/or right section of the backrest is to be lowered.

The outboard head restraints fold down automatically.

2 Pull up the backrest release control on the respective section(s) (A) and fold the section( s) down. A red indicator (B) shows that the backrest is not locked in the upright position.

NOTE
It may be necessary to move the front seats forward or put their backrests in a more upright position before folding down the rear seat backrests.

WARNING
Х When one or more sections of the backrest is returned to the upright position, check that it is properly locked in place by pushing and pulling it. The red indicators should also not be visible.
Х Return the outboard head restraints to the upright position.
Х Long loads should always be securely anchored to help avoid injury in the event of a sudden stop.
Х Always turn the engine off and apply the parking brake when loading/unloading the vehicle.
Х Place the transmission in the Park (P) position to help prevent inadvertent movement of the gear selector.
Х On hot days, the temperature in the vehicle interior can rise very quickly.
Exposure of people to these high temperatures for even a short period of time can cause heat-related injury or death.
Small children are particularly at risk.
