Volkswagen Golf Owners Manual: Adjusting the head restraints

Fig. 46 Adjusting front head restraint

Fig. 47 Adjusting rear head restraint

First read and observe the introductory information and safety warnings

Every seat is fitted with a head restraint. The centre rear head restraint is designed solely for use with the centre rear seat. This head restraint should therefore not be installed in any of the other positions.

Adjusting the height of the front head restraint

Adjusting the height of the rear head restraint

Correct head restraint setting

Adjust the head restraint so that its upper edge is at the same height as the top of the head, but not lower than eye level. Position the back of your head as close to the head restraint as possible.

Head restraint setting for shorter people

Push the head restraint all the way down, even if the head is then located underneath the top edge of the head restraint. There may be a small gap between the head restraint and backrest in the lowest position.

Head restraint setting for taller people

Push the head restraint up as far as it will go.

WARNING

Driving without head restraints or with incorrectly adjusted head restraints increases the risk of severe or fatal injuries in the event of an accident or sudden driving or braking manoeuvre.
