Getting the Wheeling Fever
Hi,

It might be a dumb question, but I have a KIA Sportage Wagon 2001. There are hindges on the front side of the seat suggesting that I can fold the seat toward the front seat and then fold downt the back rest - but I have not found anyway to do it and the owner manaual contain no guidance on that. Some tech specs sheets on the internet claim the seat is foldable.

Any suggestions?

Moshe

There should be 1 knob on the top of each rear backrest, nearest the door, next to the headrest.
Pull the knobs upward while pulling the backrest twords the front of the vehicle.
This should fold the backrest down and onto the rear seat.
Make sure your front bucket seats are positioned all the way into the most forward resting position.
There is a lever in front of the bucket seats for this adjustment.
Once the bucket seats are out of the way, you can pull the whole rear seat assembly up and forward into a position resting on and or nearest the front bucket seats.
Hope that helps. Good day.

After it's folded up just don't try to sleep back there, very lumpy! Tried it on an elk hunt, not fun <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/lol.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/lol.gif" alt="" />.

This is a great idea I gotta try some time

Only problem is if you're camping and you do this, where you do put all your stuff that was in the car? Outside I guess? lol...

When I'm hillbilly camping like that,<img src="/forums/images/graemlins/notooth.gif" alt="" /> extra stuff usually goes under a blue tarp outside the car except important stuff goes on the front seats. Usually sleep with my .45 Long Slide under the pillow... <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/kewl.gif" alt="" />
Only problem is the windows take forever to unfog.

I rarely go into the back seat area. And you will never find me sitting back there! So I was a bit frustrated the first time I unfolded the contraption too. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/scared.gif" alt="" /> I didn't learn how to do it till the trash got so backed up that I had to unfold it to take it all out. We haul our trash to a dump site. I was yelling at the wife; "Pull your freaking seat forward so we can put the bench up woman"!!! My Bad... Now I have to do it all by myself from now on. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/shame.gif" alt="" />
