direction of the arrow, the safety knob B will pop up and
the red marking on the knob will become visible.

Returning backrest to an upright position
– Push the backrest up until it engages securely ⇒ . The red marking on the safety knob B should no longer be visible when the backrest is properly secured.
When the backrest is properly engaged in its upright position, the release handle can be locked and unlocked with the key. This prevents unauthorised access to the luggage compartment from inside the vehicle.
The rear backrest must always be securely latched so that objects stored in the luggage compartment will not fly forward during sudden braking.
When returning the backrest to an upright position, make sure that the seat belts for the rear seats are in their guides so that they cannot be caught up and damaged in the catches for the backrest.
