Head restraints are designed to support the head, not the back of the neck. The head restraint must be positioned correctly to restrain rearward movement of the head in a collision or sudden stop.


Adjust the head restraint to suit the seat occupant.


While stationary, adjust the head restraint so that the top of the head restraint is the same height as the top of the seat occupant's head. An incorrectly adjusted head restraint increases the risk of death or serious injury in the event of a collision.


Never adjust the head restraints while the vehicle is in motion.


Do not drive or carry passengers with the head restraint removed from an occupied seat. The absence of a correctly adjusted head restraint increases the risk of neck injury in the event of a collision.

Front head restraint adjustment:

  1. To raise, pull the head restraint upward until it clicks and locks into position.


    Do not try to raise the head restraint further than the third adjustment position.

  2. To lower, press and hold the button on the side of the head restraint, then push down.

To remove the head restraint, raise the head restraint to its uppermost position.

  1. Press and hold the seatback socket, on each side of the head restraint.

  2. With the aid of a second person, lift the head restraint out of the seatback.


    Always store a removed head restraint securely. Unsecured objects could be thrown inside the vehicle striking and injuring occupants.

To refit the head restraint:

Make sure that the head restraint is facing the correct direction. Insert the head restraint stems into the seatback sockets and push downward until at least the first click.
