Warning A missing protective effect due to removed or not correctly adjusted head restraints can cause injuries in the head and neck area. There is a risk of injury.

  • Before driving, install the removed head restraints on the occupied seats.
  • Adjust the head restraint so its center supports the back of the head at as close to eye level as possible.
