How do you fold down the back seats in a BMW 5 Series?

I know there’s a way to fold down the back seats in my new BMW 5 Series, but I can’t figure it out. What’s the easiest way to fold down the back seats in a BMW 5 Series?

Seat controls vary from car to car, so it’s easy to get confused. Luckily, folding down your seats is relatively easy. To fold down the back seats in your new BMW 5 Series, you’ll first need to determine what type of controls you have.
  • If you have a string or strap, simply pull on the strap and push your seatbacks down and forward. The straps could be between your seats or on the top, next to the headrest.
  • If you have buttons or levers between the seats, you’ll need to either push the button or pull the lever as you push your seatbacks downwards.
  • If you have a knob at the backrest level on your seats, you’ll need to press on the knob to flip the seats down. In some models, there will be a knob on either side rather than just one.
