Telescopic operation

Pull the lever 1 all the way toward you and adjust the steering wheel forward or backward in direction 3 , to the desired position. Lock the wheel by releasing the lever and ensure that the lever has returned to its original position.

WARNING

Do not adjust the steering wheel any closer to you than is necessary for proper steering operation and comfort. The driver’s air bag inflates with great force. If you are unrestrained, leaning forward, sitting sideways or out of position in any way, you are at greater risk of injury or death in a crash. You may also receive serious or fatal injuries from the air bag if you are up against it when it inflates. Always sit back against the seatback and as far away as practical from the steering wheel. Always use the seat belts.
