You lift up or push down on the back angle adjuster.

The power seats also raise and lower if you lift straight up on the tilt adjuster.

on the side of the seat... the same lever/button that controls the rear seat position. Push it up or down. Found that out by accident a few weeks ago...

Holly crap you young people are spoiled. In my day you would just drop phone books on someone's head from atop a latter to shorten their neck to match the headrest.

You people have it far too easy today!
