Before driving, it’s important to adjust the height of the seat belt so that it is at a safe height. To raise the height of the shoulder strap, slide the belt adjuster upwards to the desired position. To lower the height of the belt, press the Release button on the adjuster and slide it downward to the desired position. Tip Adjust the height of the seat belt such that the shoulder strap runs over your shoulder, and not to the side of it. The belt should never run into your neck.
