Nissan Altima Owners Manual: Rear seat head restraints/headrests

WARNING

● Head restraints/headrests supplement the other vehicle safety systems. They may provide additional protection against injury in certain rear end collisions.

Adjust the head restraints/headrests properly, as specified in this section. Check the adjustment after someone else uses the seat.

Do not attach anything to the head restraint/headrest stalks or remove the head restraint/headrest. Do not use the seat if the head restraint/headrest has been removed. If the head restraint/headrest was removed, reinstall and properly adjust the head restraint/headrest before an occupant uses the seating position. Failure to follow these instructions can reduce the effectiveness of the head restraints/headrests. This may increase the risk of serious injury or death in a collision.
