Returning the rear seatbacks

To prevent the seat belt from becoming trapped between the seat and the interior of the vehicle, it's important to route the seat belt outside of the seat belt guide before securely returning the seatback to its locked position. This ensures that the seat belt remains properly aligned and accessible, reducing the risk of it getting caught or causing discomfort for occupants. Following this guideline helps maintain safety and comfort for everyone in the Toyota Prius by ensuring that seat belts are used effectively and securely.
