1.8. Adjustment of seats


Adjustment of a front seat

1 – the handle of the blocking lever;

2 – hinge handle;

3 – the adjustment lever on height

Before a trip adjust the provision of a seat so that to feel driving comfortably. Inconvenient landing increases fatigue that can negatively affect traffic safety.


Do not regulate the provision of a seat during the movement – it is possible to lose control over driving.

1. For adjustment of a seat in the longitudinal direction lift the handle of 1 blocking lever, move together with a seat in the necessary situation and release the handle. Then slightly move a seat back and forth to record it in the chosen situation (at the same time the click will be heard).
2. The lever 3 is intended for adjustment of a seat on height. To lift (to lower) a seat, shake the lever, previously having established it in the top (lower) situation.
3. If it is necessary to adjust a seatback inclination, turn the handle 2 hinges. The seatback rises or falls at rotation of the handle to the relevant party.


Do not throw back a back too far back during the movement, otherwise efficiency of action of seat belts is lost.

4. To adjust a head restraint 1 on height, lift it up or lower down. Spring clips will hold a head restraint in the chosen situation. The provision of a head restraint is correctly adjusted if its upper edge is at the level of eyes of the sitting person or above. On a part of models it is possible to adjust a head restraint inclination (only on a front seat) (2 – a seatback).
5. To remove a head restraint 1, lift it against the stop, then press a clamp 2 and remove a head restraint from a back 3. At installation of a head restraint at the time of its fixing the click has to be heard.
