Buick Encore: Rear Seats / Raising the Seatback

Buick Encore 2020-2022 Owner's Manual / Seats and Restraints / Rear Seats / Rear Seats / Raising the Seatback

Warning

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.

Warning

A seat 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 seat belts are properly routed and attached, and are not twisted.

To return the rear seatback to the normal seating position:

Seat Belt Clip on Side Trim

  1. Remove the outboard seat belt from the seat belt clip (if equipped) on the side trim of the vehicle.
  2. Lift the seatback and push it rearward to lock it in place. A tab near the seatback lever retracts when the seatback is locked in place.

    Make sure the seat belts are not pinched by the seatback locking mechanism.

    The center rear seat belt may lock when you raise the seatback. If this happens, let the belt go back all the way and start again. If the seat belt is still locked, try again after pulling the seat cushion out.

  3. Push and pull the top of the seatback to be sure it is locked into position.
  4. Return the seat cushion to its original position and push down on the front part of the seat cushion until it latches.

    Make sure the seat belts and seat belt buckles are not trapped under the seat cushion and are properly positioned for use.

  5. Repeat Steps 1–4 for the other seatback and seat cushion, if necessary.

If additional cargo space is not needed, the seatbacks should be kept in the upright, locked position.

    Folding the Seatback

    Either side of the seatback can be folded down for more cargo space. Fold a seatback only when the vehicle is not moving. Caution Folding a rear seat with the seat belts still fastened may cause damage to the seat or the seat belts...

    Rear Seat Armrest

    The rear seat has an armrest in the center of the seatback. Lower the armrest to access the cupholders. To fold, lift the armrest up and push it rearward until it is flush with the seatback...
