Adjusting the Head Restraints Accord

Your vehicle is equipped with head restraints in all seating positions. Head restraints are most effective for protection against whiplash and other rear-impact crash injuries.

The center of the back of the occupant’s head should rest against the center of the restraint. The tops of the occupant’s ears should be level with the center height of the restraint.

For a head restraint system to work properly:

  • Do not hang any items on the head restraints or from the restraint legs.
  • Do not place any objects between an occupant and the seat-back.
  • Install each restraint in its proper location.


Improperly positioning head restraints reduces their effectiveness and increases the likelihood of serious injury in a crash.

Make sure head restraints are in place and positioned properly before driving.
