Your car has five adjustable Head Restraints – one for each of the front seats, and three located on the rear seatback. You can move them up or down to accommodate different heights. Here’s how to do that:

  1. Make sure the seatback is adjusted for driving/riding.

  2. Pull up on the Head Restraint to raise it.

  3. To lower it, press the Lock tab and press down on the Head Restraint at the same time.

To remove the Head Restraints, press the Lock tab and pull the Restraint all the way up until the metal stems clear the sleeves in the top of the seatback. Follow these steps in reverse order to reinstall a Head Restraint.

Tips

  • The top of the Head Restraint should be even with the top of your head.

  • Never adjust the Head Restraint while the vehicle is moving.
