The "tags" are an assembled clip that hold the headrest at different height. The clip comes out by pressing both sides together using one or two screwdrivers. Easily reinserted after you get the headrest off.

I'll know more tomorrow and will share what I find.

Front headrest removal for seat covers(?)


there should be a button on the base of the posts that support the headrests (where the posts meet the rest of the seat.) that should allow you to pull the headrests out.

How do I remove the headrest from the car seat?


I have not done an 850 so this is my best guess based on doing other Volvos.......
If the back of the seat is soft, you should be able to press in on the fabric far enough to feel the two metal rods that support the headrest. The rods stick through two plastic guides. There is a notch in one or both of the metal rods near the bottom. That notch catches on a catch in the lower plastic guide. You should feel a slight bump in the lower plastic guide that is actually a release.
Have your helper pull up on the headrest while you press both those releases at the same time.
If that does not work, you will have to detach the cover from the seat back and pull it up to expose the headrest support system. That can be a real pain, but I presume that you intend to dismantle the seat anyway.

How to remove front seat headrest on a 2008 Ford Escape? Have new seat covers and need to be able to remove them to install.


There is a Pin hole on one side of the headrest in the plastic base. You have someone put a small Allen wrench in the hole till it presses against the metal spring and also on the release on the other side, then pull the headrest out. You will have to press on the spring to put the head rest back in also.

How do I remove the front seat headrest on a '94 Volvo 940?


two answers,depending on seat.
1.push in 1/2 moon shape piece at bottom of post and lift,it is stiff...
2.about 6 inches down from the post on the back of the seat you will feel a small 1" pad,push it in hard and lift headrest,it will be stiff.
better if someone sits in back and tries to move headrest at first cos you will only have one hand free
and from experience a face full of headrest can hurt.

Front Headrests


There is a plastic cover, about 1 1/8" diameter, on the base of the post on each side. You can remove it with a screw driver by carefully prising upwards at the edge. They just clip down.
Once these are lifted away from the seat, you will see the wire clip that locks the headrest into the seat. Remove the clip on each post, and you can then remove the headrest.
Reassembly is the reverse.

Headrest removal


Look at the top of ur seat, between the two shafts of ur headrest. Beside one of the posts is a black plastic base on which one side has a button u push. That allows u to remove the headrest. U might have to jimmy side to side a bit as they are somewhat hard to remove at times, just do so with ur finger pushing the release mechanism.
