Toyota RAV4 - review, photo and manual

A known issue is the front seat mounting bracket on the Rafik is rusting. There are no protective overlays. If in winter you carry snow into the salon on shoes, then the paint begins to peel off, and then rust. From the previous owner got this:

Loosen the fasteners at the front. It opened without problems. And the carving is perfect.
Next, move the chair forward. Remove the plastic pads on the rear attachment points. Snap-on pads.

We tilt the chair back. The pillow becomes vertical, the back is horizontal. Raise and shift to the steering wheel. As soon as the pillow is opposite the doorway, we turn the chair towards us and take it out through the opening with the pillow forward at the same time turning, as it were, around the central pillar.
