Tesla Model X: Folding Third Row Seats (if equipped)

To fold a third row seat, press the button located in the top outside corner of the seat. The button has two detents.

Front and Rear Seats

  1. Fold head restraint forward.
  2. Fold seat back forward.

NOTE: Before folding third row seat backs, remove any items from the seats and the footwell. To allow the seat backs to fold completely flat, you may need to move the second row seats forward.

NOTE: Driving with the third row seat backs folded forward may result in increased perceivable noise and/or vibration coming from the rear of the vehicle (trunk, suspension, etc.).

NOTE: To raise the seats, hold the button on the top outside corner of the seat, then pull the seat back upward until it latches into the upright position. Try pulling the seat back forward to confirm that it is locked in position.

WARNING: Always ensure the seats and seat backs are locked in their upright position before travel. Failure to do so increases the risk of injury.
