BMW X3 Owners Manual: Active head restraint

In the event of a rear-end collision with a certain severity, the active head restraint automatically reduces the distance from the head.

Reduced protective function

  • Do not use seat or head restraint covers.
  • Do not hang objects, e.g., clothes hangers, on the head restraints.
  • Only attach accessories approved by BMW to the seat or head restraint.

Otherwise, the protective function of the active head restraint will be impaired and the personal safety of the occupants will be endangered.
