The power front seats are controlled by the power switches on the outboard side of the seats, and can be adjusted in up to four different ways, depending on how your vehicle is equipped: 1. To move the seats horizontally, use the switch at the front of the controls. Push this switch forward to move the seat forward, or push it backward to move the seat backward. 2. To recline the seatback, use the switch that is second to the front. Push the switch forward to tilt the seatback forward, or push the switch backward to tilt the seatback backward. 3. If equipped, you can adjust the height of the seat with the switch at the front (the same switch that controls the horizontal adjustment). Lift the switch up to raise the seat, or push the switch down to lower the seat. 4. If equipped, you can adjust the lumbar support with the rear switch. Press the front of the switch to move the lumbar support forward, or press the back of the switch to move the lumbar support backward. Tips Before driving, always adjust your seat to the ideal position.
