If the seatback is reclined, the risk of sliding under the lap belt and being injured is increased. CAUTION When adjusting the seat positions, be sure not to contact any moving parts to avoid possible injuries and/or damage.

  28. 28. Adjust the Active Head Restraints properly as described in this section. SPA1025Front-seat Active Head RestraintsThe Active Head Restraint moves forward utiliz-ing the force that the seatback receives from theoccupant in a rear-end collision. The movementof the head restraint helps support the occu-pant’s head by reducing its backward movementand helping absorb some of the forces that maylead to whiplash-type injuries.Active Head Restraints are effective for collisionsat low to medium speeds in which it is said thatwhiplash injury occurs most.Active Head Restraints operate only in certainrear-end collisions. After the collision, the headrestraints return to their original position.1-10 Safety—Seats, seat belts and supplemental restraint system
