SOURCE: how to fix 09 accord ex-l headrest angle wife is

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.

SOURCE: the drivers seat (back/headrest) will

Sounds like you need to recalibrate your seat, but because you can't move it forward I don't think you will be able to. You might want to try and pull the fuse for the seat affected and see if it starts working again. If not then it might be time to replace the motors.

Tell us news (remember rated this).

SOURCE: Can the 2010 Navigator replace

Finally found someone after 40 years, that believes a 5th grader could design a vehicle.
I have told my wife, that I would fire most all design engineers,ever hired since 1960. You can't even remove an oil filter, for the last 45 years,let alone see it.
I have 47 years,some professional, and can't believe what these maufactures are thinking.
Iam about to do a ground up 60's resto, and never drive drive a high tech vehicle again. And I understand the technology and have no problem repairing them.

Can i turn my front headrests around on my 2013 xts? they are too far forward and would like to just flip them around.


These adjust I think. Pull gently all the way forward and release. They should go way back and then you can pull forward on click at a time to adjust.

Bothersome Headrest Fix


I just got a 2008 Cobalt and I didn't like the way the headrest tilted my head forward. I found that I could remove the headrest and turn it around. It is much more comfortable that way.

The first step is to lift the headrest to the highest height.
Then insert a paper clip in the little hole on the side of the headrest slide. (You may have to press the realease ad lift on the other side first)
The headrest will then lift out completely.
Flip it around and put it back in.

You will need the paper clip to adjust the height, but this seems like a one time adjustment.

2012 honda cvcc headrest


I had the same problem with mine and 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 just enough to keep the headrest from pushing my head forward. It only cost a few dollars and you can't tell by looking at the seat that I did anything at all to it. Now it's very comfortable and my neck is happy. Only thing is I don't think you can do this to the front passenger seat without interfering with the airbag sensor. At least that's what I would surmise based on the fact that they didn't put the seat heater in the back of that seat for that reason. But I never ride in the passenger seat so it's not an issue for me and no one else has complained about it. Now that I've fixed this one problem I love my Civic.

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.

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.

Removal of head rests


Look at the base of the headrest there is a small button which looks as if it is part of the moulding.

Pulls the headrest up as far as it will go then depress that button rock the headrest side to side as you press and it will come out

Removal of headrest on 2005 Ford F150.


The headrest has on obvious button to adjust the height and another button kinda hidden to remove the headrest. The black plastic ring at the base where the metal poles insert into the seat is where the two buttons. You probably noticed the obvious on that sticks out of the side of one of the rings. The other plastic ring contains a similar button that is not noticeable due to it being flush with the side of the plastic ring. Adjust the headrest to its highest position, then locate the "hidden" button on the other plastic ring and depress it while lifting on the headrest and it should come out.
