How do I adjust the steering wheel?

Before driving, you should always adjust your steering wheel until it is in the optimal position for you. To adjust the steering wheel, push down on the Lock lever, which is located directly below the steering wheel. Then, move the steering wheel up or down, and side to side, and adjust the tilt. When the steering wheel is in the ideal location, pull the lever up to its original position. Attempt to move the wheel, to make sure it is securely locked in place.
