1Adjusting the Seat-Backs  
Adjusting the Seat-Backs  
Adjust the driver's seat-back to a comfortable,  
upright position, leaving ample space  
between your chest and the airbag cover in  
the centre of the steering wheel.  
3WARNING  
Reclining the seat-back too far can result in  
serious injury or death in a crash.  
Adjust the seat-back to an upright position,  
and sit well back in the seat.  
The front seat passenger should also adjust  
their seat-back to a comfortable, upright  
position.  
Do not put a cushion, or other object, between the  
seat-back and your back.  
Reclining a seat-back so that the shoulder part of the belt no longer rests against the  
occupant's chest reduces the protective capability of the belt. It also increases the  
chance of sliding under the belt in a crash and being seriously injured. The farther a  
seat-back is reclined, the greater the risk of injury.  
Doing so may interfere with proper seat belt or airbag  
operation.  
If you cannot get far enough away from the steering  
wheel and still reach the controls, we recommend  
that you investigate whether some type of adaptive  
equipment may help.
