How do I adjust the power front seats?

The power front seats can be adjusted to help the driver and front passenger be as comfortable as possible. It’s very important to always adjust your seat before you drive, so that you are in the safest position possible for driving. The power front seats are controlled by the switches on the outboard side of the seats, and can be adjusted in up to five different ways: 1. Adjust the seat horizontally with the front switch. Push this switch forward to move the seat forward, or push the switch back to move the seat back. 2. Adjust the height of the seat with the front switch. Pull the back of this switch up to raise the seat, or push the back of the switch down to lower the seat. 3. Adjust the tilt of the seat with the front switch. Pull the front of this switch up to raise the front of the seat cushion, or push the front of the switch down to lower the front of the seat cushion. 4. Adjust the angle of the seatback with the middle switch. Push this switch back to recline the seat, or push the switch forward to angle the seatback forward. 5. Adjust the lumbar support with the rear switch. Push the front of this switch to increase the lumbar support, or press the rear of the switch to decrease the lumbar support.
