Audi A4: Head restraints

General information

Applies to: vehicles with adjustable head restraints

Sitting correctly and safely
Fig. 61 Correctly-adjusted head restraint

Make sure that:

  • The upper edge of the head restraint is as even as possible with the top of your head
  • The head restraint is as close as possible to the back of the head
  • The head restraints in any occupied rear seats are all the way up

WARNING

  • There is one head restraint for each seat. All vehicle occupants must adjust the head restraint correctly before every trip. Having head restraints that are not adjusted correctly or not installed in the vehicle increases the risk of a neck injury during sudden or unexpected driving or braking maneuvers or in a collision.
  • Only remove the rear seat head restraints if it is necessary to install a child safety seat. Stow the removed head restraints securely, for example in the luggage compartment. Reinstall the head restraints immediately once the child safety seat has been removed. Driving without head restraints increases the risk of serious neck injuries.
