BMW 7 Series: Rear head restraints

Safety information

Warning


A missing protective effect due to removed or not correctly adjusted head restraints can cause injuries in the head and neck area. There is a risk of injury.

  • Before driving, install the removed head restraints on the occupied seats.
  • Adjust the head restraint so its center supports the back of the head at as close to eye level as possible.
  • Adjust the distance so that the head restraint is as close as possible to the back of the head. Adjust the distance via the backrest tilt as needed.

Warning


Body parts can be jammed when moving the head restraint. There is a risk of injury. Make sure that the area of movement is clear when moving the head restraint.
