3rd row, you simply pull the lever which makes the back fold down and then grip the handle located on the bottom and pull toward you slightly hard. They are heavy so it seems like they aren't coming out, just pull hard. second row, you flip all the way up and push with them standing up and they come unhooked. Good Luck! I didn't have any problems, except they are at least 50+lbs!

Most volvo headrest can be removed by releasing the catches which are on the back of the headrest on some models and on the front on others I believe on 960 they are on the back. To release the seat on a 960 look where the shafts should be then follow it down on the back where the seat back top stops then goes in press around that area you should be able to find the catch there pull up on the headrest while releasing the catch you have to do this on both sides. The headrest should come off this also works on 740 and 760 series the volvo 780 is a different story the only way to get the headrest off on that is to disassemble the seat

These seats are hard to get in and out, especially if the receiver hook on the floor has any obstruction; so first thing is to clear out anything that may be interfering with the seat from properly seating in the front hooks.
This fix applies to seats that are stuck and won't come out as well as seats that won't go back in.
Each seat has two levers on their back, marked; one for 'tumble' and the other for remove. Problem is, if you press the 'tumble' lever when the seat is out it may not let you replace the seat without first holding BOTH levers up while pushing the seat back into place, then pushing the seat DOWNWARD to reset the mechanism for tumble. Then, push the seat down so that the locking mechanism for tumble (a black lever under and on the drivers side of the seat).
If the receiver hooks are clear and the seat retainer mechanism is properly set you will be able to push the seat in and press down on the back of the seat and hear a very satisfying thunk that lets you know the seat is properly locked in.
These seats can handle quite a bit of shoving and jamming, and you may just have to work it hard to get them back into place.

I have had this problem, and I am having it again. The problem is if a little trash gets under the bar in the floor, it will keep the mechanism from locking completely. I had tried everything. The only solution so far is the rock back and forth. Real pain. I am trying to find a secret release.
