Head Restraints

* Some models.

Head restraints are intended to help protect you and the passengers from neck injury.

WARNING:
Always drive with the head restraints installed when seats are being used and make sure they are properly adjusted:
Driving with the head restraints adjusted too low or removed is dangerous. With no support behind your head, your neck could be seriously injured in a collision.

Height adjustment

To raise a head restraint, pull it up to the desired position.

To lower the head restraint, press the stopcatch release, then push the head restraint down.

Adjust the head restraint so that the top is even with the top of the passenger's ears, never the passenger's neck to prevent injury.
