How do I remove headrests in 2009 Nissan Altima?

The headrests in our 2009 Nissan Altima tilt too far forward, pushing my head forward. I'd like to remove them and turn them backwards. Do I just pull them straight out, or how do I remove them?

SOURCE: head light 2005 altima

you have to remove the bulbs from inside of the hood in the engine compartment. in some cars you have to remove some "pins' and remove the entire headlight assembly.. You then remove the holder where the lightbulb is located and replace the bulb.

How do i remove head restraint from fiat palio 1.2 ed 3 door car


Tilt the seat then you will see two plastic surrounds where the headrest supports slide into, one will have a tab, with the seat tilted so the headrest can clear the roof push the tab at the same time as you tug the headrest out and the headrest will slide out.

How do I adjust the front headrest on my 2009 Lincoln MKS so that they do not tilt so far forward?


I turned my headrests backward. Worked great. In fact, I wonder if the engineers designed them that way but the production guys build them backward???
1) Tilt the seat way back to allow room to remove headrests, 2) Press and hold both headrest release tabs at the same time and have someone else pull out the headrest completely, 3) turn the headrests backward and insert into the two headrest guide slots (headrests fit the same either way). 4) No more pain in the neck !!!
Caution: I do not know what this does for whiplash injury protection but it seems OK for my own comfort with the solution. And it beats the pain in the neck caused by the bass-akwards design.

2012 Honda Civix EX - Big Problem w/front seat headrests


I had the same problem with mine for the first month I drove it. Already having a herniated disc in my neck didn't help. What I did was unzip the back of the seat cover and insert some foam into the back of the seat. This pushed the front of the seat out enough to keep my head from being pushed forward by the slanted headrest. The headrest is still right behind my head but it is no longer pushed forward painfully. You can't tell that I did anything to the seat from looking at it, but now it's comfortable and I love my Civic.

Can the headrest for a 2010 ford expedition be replaced with an aftermarket so not to have that angle?


I know five (5) people who purchased the 2009 or 2010 Expedition. All 100% of them have complaints of the headrest hurting their neck. I know folks that won't even drive their new 2010 Expedition because it hurts their necks, and the dealer won't take it back! If enough people tell ford about the problem, erhaps Ford will post a Technical Service Bulletin (TSB) to tell dealers how to fix the problem. It is possible to build safe headrests that do not hurt necks during normal driving: just look at the competition. The headrest is not the right equipment to sacrifice comfort. Neck pain causes distraction and is a safety issue. Ford should be as concerned about liability from wrecks caused by headrest pian distractions as they are about the rear impact safety. Complain to Ford!

How to fix 09 accord ex-l headrest angle wife is 5'4 & it juts her head forward she can't use it without pain. what are the options


I bent the headrest posts that stick into the back of the seat - basically a "manual" way of tilting the headrest back. Just don't bend too much or the "active head restraint system" won't work right. I had the exact same problem (I'm 6'1"), now I can drive for more than 15 minutes without terrible neck pain.

Want a RAV4 but the headrests are terrible!


I moved one of the headrests from the back to the driver's seat. Had to open the legs a little bit but it fit.
Something else I found is that if one adjusts the seat so that it cradles one's body, thus maximizing contact between the body and the seat, and then puts the headrest back on it does not pushes one's head forward. Seems they designed it to be driven as if one was sitting on a recliner.
Although one can drive comfortably in that position, the headrest is massive and blocks the view over one's right shoulder.

You can pry them back and they should tilt. Otherwise pull up real hard and they will come out.
