Folding and Tumbling the Seat from the Third Row Seat

Cadillac Escalade ESV / Cadillac Escalade ESV Owners Manual / Seats and Restraints / Rear Seats / Second Row Seats / Folding and Tumbling the Seat from the Third Row Seat


Using the third row seating position while the second row is folded, or folded and tumbled, could cause injury in a sudden stop or crash. Be sure to return the seat to the passenger seating position. Push and pull on the seat to make sure it is locked into place.

To fold and tumble the seat from the third row seat, if equipped:

1. Make sure that there is nothing under, in front of, or on the seat.

Notice: 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.

3. Lift the same lever again to release the rear of the seat from the floor. The seat will tumble forward.
