How do I adjust the front power seats?

A: The front power seat can be easily adjusted...

The front power seat can be easily adjusted to make sure that you are in the optimal position while you drive. The front power seat can be adjusted in five ways: 1. The horizontal placement of the seat is adjusted with the main adjustment switch on the front side of the seat. Push the switch forward or backward to move the seat in that direction. 2. The height of the seat is adjusted with the main adjustment switch. Pull up on the front of the switch to raise the height of the seat, or push down on the front of the switch to lower the seat. 3. The tilt of the seat is adjusted with the main adjustment switch. Pull up on the back of the switch to tilt the rear of the seat cushion up, or push down on the rear of the switch to tilt the rear of the seat cushion down. 4. The angle of the seat-back is adjusted with the seat-back angle adjustment switch, which is directly behind the main adjustment switch. Push this switch forward to tilt the seat-back forward, or push it backward to angle the seat-back backward. 5. The lumbar support is adjusted with the lumbar support adjustment switch, which is at the rear side of the seat. Press the front or rear of the lumbar support adjust switch to adjust the lumbar support in that direction.
