Chevrolet Captiva Owners Manual: Rear Seats

Folding the Seatback


Folding a rear seat with the safety belts still fastened may cause damage to the seat or the safety belts. Always unbuckle the safety belts and return them to their normal stowed position before folding a rear seat.

To fold a seatback:

Unbuckle the rear safety belts and put the front seatback in the upright position. See Reclining Seatbacks on page 3-5.

Folding the Seatback

  1. Lift the lever on the top of the seatback and fold the seatback forward.
  2. Repeat Steps 1 and 2 for the other seatback, if desired.

Raising the Seatback


  • If either seatback is not locked, it could move forward in a sudden stop or crash. That could cause injury to the person sitting there.

    Always push and pull on the seatbacks to be sure they are locked.

  • A safety belt that is improperly routed, not properly attached, or twisted will not provide the protection needed in a crash. The person wearing the belt could be seriously injured. After raising the rear seatback, always check to be sure that the safety belts are properly routed and attached, and are not twisted.

To return the seatback to the upright position:

  1. Lift the seatback up and push it back into place.
  2. Push and pull the top of the seatback to be sure it is locked into position.
  3. Make sure the safety belts are not twisted or caught in the seatback.
  4. Repeat Steps 1 and 2 for the other seatback, if necessary.

When the seatback is not in use, it should be kept in the upright, locked position.

Reclining the Seatback

To recline the seatback:

  1. Lift and hold the lever on top of the seatback.
  2. Tilt the seatback rearward, and then release the lever.
  3. Repeat Steps 1 and 2 for the other seatback, if desired.

Chevrolet Captiva owner's manual (C100/C140) provides a detailed guide on how to operate and manipulate the rear seats, offering a great deal of flexibility to accommodate varying cargo and passenger requirements. One of the primary functions covered in the manual is the process of folding the seatback. This typically involves locating and releasing a latch or lever near the top of the seatback, allowing it to fold forward. This action creates additional cargo space in the rear of the vehicle, which can be highly beneficial when transporting larger or bulkier items.

In addition to folding the seatback, the manual also explains how to raise it back to its upright position. This step is crucial for accommodating passengers in the rear seats comfortably, especially during regular commuting or long drives. The manual may provide specific instructions on adjusting the angle of the seatback as well, allowing occupants to find the most comfortable seating position based on their preferences.

By consulting the owner's manual, Chevrolet Captiva owners can easily navigate these processes and make the most out of their vehicle's interior space. Whether it's maximizing cargo capacity or ensuring passenger comfort, the manual serves as a comprehensive resource for understanding and utilizing the rear seat features effectively.
