How do I adjust the front head restraints?

The front head restraints can be adjusted so that they are at the optimal height for the driver and the front passenger. To raise a head restraint, simply lift it straight up. To lower a head restraint, press the release button at the base of the restraint, and push the restraint down. *Tip Head restraints can protect your head and neck in an accident, but won’t do their job properly if they’re not adjusted to the correct height. You should adjust the front head restraints so that the center of the restraint is at the same level as the top of your ears.
