Adjustment of seats and head restraints

Provision of seats and head restraints

The design of seats of the car guarantees the maximum comfort to the person sitting in them, at the same time providing conditions of the most effective implementation of the functions with belts and safety cushions. Soft stuffing of pillows and backs provides additional protection of the driver and passengers in emergencies.

The choice of provision of a seat also influences safety of the person sitting in it. For example, at excessive shift of a forward seat the risk of a travmirovaniye sitting at safety cushion operation, and also risk of ejection through a windscreen forward increases at a head-on collision.

The increase in an inclination of a back of a seat will worsen body fixing by a seat belt, - the more the back is rejected back, the probability of a proskalzyvaniye of a body of a belt sitting under zone section is higher at strong front blow, and the can be traumatized more hard.

Fix a forward seat in the most remote (convenient for driving implementation) from the helmsman of the wheel/dashboard situation, a back bring into vertical situation.

Head restraints prevent a travmirovaniye of cervical department of a backbone and the head at blow behind. The head restraint should be adjusted on height so that its top cut was flush with the upper edge of an ear sitting.

Adjustment of forward seats

Adjustment of forward seats is made by means of the switches located on the lower part of pillows of seats.

Arrangement and purpose of switches of management as the provision of forward seats

Adjust the provision of a seat and, holding the SET button, press the button "1" or "2" on the block of switches of control of provision of a driver's seat (No. 17 illustrations the Scheme of an arrangement of elements of management on dashboards). In confirmation of successful record of settings the short sound signal should sound. The second option of settings of provision of a seat similarly registers. For rewriting of settings act in the way besides described above.

  3. For installation of sitting of the driver in the situation which is storing in memory, simply press the button with number corresponding to demanded option of settings. If not demanded settings are casually chosen, to stop moving of a seat it is possible in pressing the necessary button or in pressing a brake pedal.

Adjustment and folding of back seats

Slightly to incline a back of a back seat it is possible having moved a seat forward back.

  1. For increase in volume of a luggage compartment possibility of folding of a back seat is provided. Previously clean seat belts from a pillow of a back seat. Completely lower a head restraint, pull one hand up the corresponding clamp of a back close to a head restraint, and other hand incline a back forward and combine it.
