Unclipping centre rear seatbelt

To fold down rear seats. Manual says "use buckle of other seatbelt to unclip" I assume they're refering to the unclipping black thing at the bottom of the belt, but I have no idea how to do it!

Thanks for the help

The black, square plastic piece coming out of the seat (drivers side) has a small slot in it with red plastic inside. To unclip this portion of the centre seatbelt (shoulder portion) use another seatbelt (chrome end) to push in on the red plastic to unclip the shoulder section. You can then store the belt in the holder on the rear deck. With that gone the seats will fold down unobstructed.
Clear as mud?
Good luck.

Thanks! Got it right, had figured out that was what I needed to do but was using the clip that's on the centre belt not thinking it made a difference. I notice now its a different shape and thicker which it's why it didn't work.

A surprisingly vague instruction from the owners manual especially given the detail they go into other far more obvious things!

Didn't think about using another belt. I've been using the key from the remote.
