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.


While stationary, adjust the head restraint so that the top of the head restraint is above the centerline of the head. An incorrectly adjusted head restraint increases the risk of death or serious injury in the event of a collision.


It is possible to swivel the head restraint forwards or backwards. For greater protection in the event of a collision, the head restraint should be adjusted so that it is as close to the back of the head as is practical.


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


Never adjust the head restraints while the vehicle is in motion. Doing so may cause you to lose control of the vehicle.

  1. Press the locking collar to release the head restraint.

  2. While pressing the locking collar, move the head restraint up or down to the required position. See SITTING IN THE CORRECT POSITION.

Manual head restraints may be removed, if required, (e.g., to fit larger child seats). Raise the head restraint to its uppermost position and press the locking collar. Lift the restraint out of the seatback.


Always store a removed head restraint securely. In the event of an accident, an unsecured object could cause serious injury or death.

Make sure the head restraint is refitted before the seat is used by a passenger.

To refit the head restraint, make sure it is facing the correct direction, insert the stems of the head restraint into the sockets and push it downwards until at least the first click.


Refer to CHILD SEATS, for details on correct child restraint fitment.
