Your car may be equipped with tilting Head Restraints. This provides additional comfort, but it’s not available on all models. If yours is so equipped, here’s how you work them:

  1. Make sure the seatback is in the right position for driving or riding.

  2. Grab the top of the Head Restraint.

  3. Pivot the Restraint in the direction you want.


  • If you pivot the Head Restraint all the way forward, pulling it again will release it to move backward.

  • Never adjust Head Restraints while the car is in motion. Only adjust them when the car is parked as it requires two hands.
