Read and follow the introductory information and safety information firstIntroduction to the subject 

Adjust the steering wheel only when the vehicle is not moving.

  • Push down on the lever ⇒ Fig. 48① .
  • Adjust the steering wheel so that it can be held with hands at 9 o'clock and 3 o'clock positions on the outside of the steering wheel rim and with the arms slightly bent at the elbow.
  • Pull the lever up firmly until it is flush with the steering column ⇒ .

Warning

Improper use of the steering column adjustment feature can result in serious personal injury and even death.
  • Always pull the lever ⇒ Fig. 48①  firmly upward after adjusting the steering column so that the steering wheel does not change position suddenly while the vehicle is moving.
  • Never adjust the steering column while the vehicle is moving. If you find that you need to adjust the steering wheel while driving, stop the vehicle in a safe place and make the proper adjustment.
  • Never adjust the steering wheel so that it points toward your face. Always make sure that the steering wheel points toward your chest. Otherwise, the airbag system cannot protect you properly in the event of a crash.
  • Always hold the steering wheel on the outside of the steering wheel rim with your hands at the 9 o'clock and 3 o'clock positions to help reduce the risk of serious personal injury if the driver airbag inflates.
  • Never hold the steering wheel at the 12 o'clock position or with your hands anywhere inside the steering wheel or on the steering wheel hub. Holding the steering wheel the wrong way increases the risk of severe injury to the arms, hands, and head if the driver airbag deploys.
