Lever on rear lower left of driver's seat

Post by gnalan »

I have no idea what this lever does. I thought that it might tilt the seat, if needed, for more access to the rear seat, but I've pulled up on it while trying to move the seat around by hand and it doesn't seem to do anything. It is a power seat.

Does anyone else have this lever, or know what it's supposed to do (if anything)? I'm more curious about it being there than anything. Just seems odd to me, but I don't know what it does so it may have a purpose that I haven't found yet.

If its the black one on the back by the seat base it will release the upper seat to fold up towards the steering wheel. There should be one on the drivers and passenger seat. Send a picture so I know which lever you're talking about.

There's levers on both sides of both front seats.

I should have looked in the owner's manual before posting. It does tilt the backrest forward for extra room for long loads, although not sure how I'd drive with the driver's seat like that.
