How do I adjust the steering wheel?

Adjusting the steering wheel is an important thing to do. Having the steering wheel adjusted to the optimal position for you will increase your ability to drive safely, and also increase your comfort. It’s very easy to adjust the steering wheel: 1. Locate the steering wheel adjustment lever, which is directly below the steering column. Pull the lever up. 2. Pull the steering wheel out towards you, or push it back towards the dashboard, until it’s the optimal distance from you. 3. Lift the steering wheel up, or push it down, until it is the optimal height. 4. Push the steering wheel adjustment lever down until it locks back into place. 5. Try to move the steering wheel around to make sure that it is securely locked. Tip It is incredibly dangerous to adjust the steering wheel while you are driving, as you won’t be able to steer properly. Only adjust the steering wheel when the car is stopped.
