How do you tilt or extend the steering wheel?

Your steering wheel offers both telescopic and tilt operation. Tilting the wheel lets you get the perfect angle for driving safely. Here’s how to do both.

To Tilt:

  1. Pull the lever on the bottom of the steering column down.

  2. Tilt the steering wheel up or down to get the right angle.

  3. Push the lever back up to lock the wheel in its new position.

To Telescope:

  1. Pull the lever on the bottom of the steering column down.

  2. Pull the wheel out (or push it in).

  3. Push the lever back to lock the steering wheel again.

Tip

Don’t position the steering wheel too close to your chest, as this can cause injury if the air bag deploys.
