SOURCE: blown fuse

I had the same problem and I was talking to a neighbor, and he had a 97 S10 and he said he had the same problem and it was the motor for the power seats (some type of a short in the motor). best idea is move the seats the way you want them and go under the seats and unplug the power seat motor... it fix my neighbors and it fixed mine.

SOURCE: install back seat

Someone else had this problem and posted the solution online. I found it while planning to reupholster the drivers seat on my Olds Alero. Hope this helps, i've cut and pasted from wikianswers.... I had the same problem, hence my stumbling across this question this afternoon. i just spent a very frustrating hour working it out! first, to get an idea of how the black clips sit, place them in the rectangular gaps on either side at the front of the seat. the plastic clips sit in the rectangular hole, with the pointy ends facing up. the short one at the front. the short pointy end clips around the front edge of the rectangular hole. the longer pointy end that is now towards the rear of the car is meant to clip onto the wire that sticks out at the front of the seat. there is one on either side of the seat so it is easy to see them line up roughly. the pointy end doesnt clip around the u shaped bit that sticks out, but the striaght bit just behind that. now, if you can understand what i meant. it is time to install. take the plastic clip out of the rectangular hole. clip the long pointy end around the wire on the seat. lower it carefully into place. this is what i found the tricky bit. you can't see, so i lined it up by feel, and lowered it very carefully. then....... after trying many times to put in in place, a finally forced it in with brute stregnth and determination. you have to force it down towards the back of the car to make the clip latch into the rectangular hole. it took me ages to work out the frist one, then the second side only took a minute as i knew what to do. hope this was understandable and will help.

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.

How do i remove the headrest 2006 ford f 150

You just have to push the button on the side of one of the bars that connects to the headrest and lift up. On some vehicles you have to insert a paper clip into a hole on the opposite bar to get the headrest to come off.

I hope this helps, and thanks for using Fixya.

Remove chyrsler town & country headrest

Pull the headrest all the way up. Where the two rods go down into the seatback you will see a small hole in each of the plastic mounts. All you have to do is push a paper clip into the hole and lift theb headrest up to remove it. Do this for each rod. To reinstall just push the rods back in. Thanks for visiting I hope I solved the problem for you.

I'm trying to remove the headrest on my 2003 mustang front seat.

On the part that you squeeze to raise the head rest is a little hole on the inside between the 2 bars. You need to push a paper clip or something like that in the hole to release the stop and keep pushing as you lift. Once that is done then you can pull the rest out.

Good luck
