Rear seats (Hardtop models)



Before folding the rear seats:

Secure the seat belts on the seat belt hooks on the side wall. (See “Seat belt hooks (Hardtop models)” later in this section.)
Disconnect and stow the center seat belt and tongue into the retractor base. (See “Rear center seat belt (Hardtop models)” later in this section.)
Always reconnect the center seat belt when the seat is returned to the upright position.
Remove drink containers from the rear cup holder.

To return the seatbacks:

To return the seatbacks:

Manual operation:

Lift up each seatback and push it to the upright position until it is latched.

Power operation (if so equipped): Push and hold the corresponding switch located on the lower side of the instrument panelB or the right or left side in the cargo area A .

A beep sounds once and the seatback will be returned automatically.

A beep sounds twice when the seatback is fully returned to the seating position.

If the control unit detects any obstacle or malfunctions while in the power operation, a beep sounds for 4 seconds and the seatback will return to the folded position automatically.

Check if there are any obstacles caught that prevent seats from returning to the folded position. See a NISSAN dealer if the beep still sounds.


When operating the rear power seatback return, make sure that the vehicle is stopped and the transmission is in the P (Park) position.


Never allow anyone to ride in the cargo area or on the rear seats when they are in the fold-down position. In a collision, people riding in these areas are more likely to be seriously injured or killed.
Do not allow people to ride in any area of your vehicle that is not equipped with seats and seat belts.

Be sure everyone in your vehicle is in a seat and using a seat belt properly.
Do not fold down the rear seats when occupants are in the rear seat area or any luggage is on the rear seats.
When folding or returning the seatbacks to the upright position, to avoid injury to yourself and others:

— Make sure that the seat path is clear before moving the seat.
— Be careful not to allow hands or feet to get caught or pinched in the seat.

Properly secure all cargo to help prevent it from sliding or shifting.

Do not place cargo higher than the seatbacks. In a sudden stop or collision, unsecured cargo could cause personal injury.
When returning the seatbacks, be sure to attach the rear center seat belt connector.
Do not unfasten the rear center seat belt connector except when folding down the rear seat.
When attaching the rear center seat belt connector, be certain that the seatbacks are completely secured in the latched position and the rear center seat belt connector is completely secured.
If the rear center seat belt connector and the seatbacks are not secured in the correct position, serious personal injury may result in an accident or sudden stop.



Pull the reclining strap A and position the seatback at the desired angle. Release the reclining strap after positioning the seat at the desired angle.

The reclining feature allows adjustment of the seatback for occupants of different sizes to help obtain proper seat belt fit. (See “Precautions on seat belt usage” later in this section.) The seatback may also be reclined to allow occupants to rest when the vehicle is parked.


Do not ride in a moving vehicle when the seatback is reclined. This can be dangerous. The shoulder belt will not be against your body. In an accident, you could be thrown into it and receive neck or other serious injuries. You could also slide under the lap belt and receive serious internal injuries.
For the most effective protection when the vehicle is in motion, the seat should be upright. Always sit well back in the seat with both feet on the floor and adjust the seat belt properly. See “Precautions on seat belt usage” later in this section.
After adjustment, check to be sure the seat is securely locked.
