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. Shift of a driver's seat affects convenience of using governing bodies during driving back.

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.

    On 3-door models (Cabriolet) for simplification of landing and disembarkation of back passengers it is necessary to cast away forward a back of a forward passenger seat, - pull up the lever located in the basis of a back from outer side of assembly of a seat, or press a pedal, from the back party of the same lever. Thus assembly of a seat will be displaced forward, and its back will fall by a pillow, - do not forget to return a seat to a starting position.
    Back of a driver's seat it is in addition equipped with an adjustable lumbar emphasis. For a choice of optimum provision of an emphasis turn the lever located on right боковине of a back. At a lever povorachivaniye forward the curve of an emphasis increases, and on the contrary.
    For a head restraint podnimaniye simply pull it up; for lowering - press a clamp and lower a head restraint.

Adjustment and folding of back seats


    For adjustment of a tilt angle of a back of a back seat slightly deviate back and pull for a stopper located outside in the basis боковины of a back. Lean back back on a demanded corner and release a stopper. On termination of adjustment make sure that the stopper returned to a starting position.
    For increase in volume of a luggage compartment possibility of folding of a back seat is provided. Pull one hand up one of the clamps close to back head restraints, the second hand combine the corresponding section of a back forward, previously having cleaned from a seat pillow a seat belt, - in order to avoid damage of a clamp do not pull for it when lowering back. Operating in a similar manner, combine the second section of a back.
