Push the rear of the seat into position to lock it in place. A warning message will be shown in the instrument cluster if the seat is not correctly locked back into position. The driver and front passenger seats include non-adjustable head restraints, which limit the rearward travel of the head in a rear impact and may reduce whiplash injuries. When sitting in the seats make sure that the seat back is in an upright position and that the rear of the occupant’s head is positioned in the center of the head restraint area. The head restraints are most effective when the distance between the rear of the occupant’s head and the head restraint is kept to a minimum.Aston Martin DB11 2021 Checks Before Driving and Windows User Guide 03


Warning: Misuse of the window switches, especially by children, can result in injury due to entrapment in the window closure. Drivers must advise all passengers of the possible danger and make sure that all obstructions are clear before raising the window. The windows can be operated up to one minute after the ignition is turned off. To raise and lower the windows the ignition must on. Use a window switch on the driver’s side (A) or the passenger’s side (B) to operate a window.Aston Martin DB11 2021 Checks Before Driving and Windows User Guide 04

If the power to the electric windows has been interrupted for any reason, they will fail to operate correctly until reset. Door Sealing

Make sure that all passengers are clear when the window mechanism is operating. To minimize wind noise and to make sure that the window seal is watertight, a door sealing system is used to provide a tight fit of the door glass to the seals around the top of the door opening.
The window automatically lowers a small distance to clear the door seal when a door is opened. When the door is closed, the window automatically lifts against the body frame rubber seals.

Window Anti-Trap
The door windows use an anti-trap mechanism to prevent accidental closure of a window on vulnerable parts of the body or other obstructions. When the window motor senses an obstruction, the window stops closing and then opens to release the obstruction.
