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.

Tips

  • 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.
