Tesla Model 3: Head Supports

The front seats and outer rear seats include integrated head supports that are not adjustable.

The rear center seat includes an adjustable head support that can be raised, lowered, or removed. The head support should always be raised and locked into position (so that the center is aligned with the center of the ears) when occupied by a passenger that is not in a child safety seat.

Head Supports


Warning: The head support in the rear center seat must be lowered when a seat belt retained child safety seat is installed in that seating position.

Warning: Ensure that all head supports are positioned correctly before sitting in, or operating, Model 3 to minimize the risk of severe injury or death in the event of a collision.

Raising/Lowering the Rear Center Head Support

To raise the head support, lift it until you hear it click into place. Push down on the head support to ensure that it is secure.

To lower the head support, press and hold the button on the outer base of the right post and press the head support down.

Removing/Installing a Head Support

To remove the head support:

  1. Raise the head support as described above.

  3. Insert a short, flat object (such as a small flat-head screwdriver) into the opening on the inside base of the left post and pull the head support upward.

Removing/Installing a Head Support


To re-install the head support:

  1. With the front of the head support facing forward, insert both posts into the corresponding holes on the seat back.

  3. Pull up on the head support to ensure that it is secure.

Warning: Ensure that the head support is correctly installed before seating an occupant. Failure to do so increases the risk of injury or death if a collision occurs.

Seat Heaters

The front and rear seats (if equipped) contain heating pads that operate at three levels from 3 (highest) to 1 (lowest). To operate the seat heaters

Warning: To avoid burns resulting from prolonged use, individuals who have peripheral neuropathy, or whose capacity to feel pain is limited because of diabetes, age, neurological injury, or some other condition, should exercise caution when using the climate control system and seat heaters.

Seat Covers

Warning: Do not use seat covers in Model 3. Doing so could restrict deployment of the seat-mounted side air bags if a collision occurs. Also, if the vehicle is equipped with an occupant detection system that is used to determine the status of the passenger front airbag, seat covers may interfere with this system.
