restraint in any other position.
There are notches in the head restraint supports so that they can be locked in different positions. Only head restraints which are correctly mounted can lock into the
notches within the adjustable range. To prevent the head restraints from being removed unintentionally after mounting, there are stops at the top and bottom of the
adjustable range.
Correct head restraint adjustment

may be a small gap between the head restraint and the backrest.
Head restraint adjustment for taller persons
Move the head restraint up all the way.
WARNING
Driving with head restraint that have been removed or adjusted incorrectly increases the risk of serious or fatal injuries in the event of an accident or sudden
driving and braking maneuvers.
If a person is sitting in a seat, always drive with the head restraint correctly installed and adjusted on that seat.
If a person is sitting in a seat, adjust the head restraint according to their height.
Never adjust the head restraint while driving.
