    Does the tool slip down the front of the support in the channel? Is it just a piece of flat stock or does it have a key type end? I triesd a piece of shim stock down the back but that yeilded no rusults. Thanks for your help

SOURCE: How can I remove front row seat headrest?

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

SOURCE: I'm trying to remove the headrest on my 2003

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

How do I remove the headrests in order to install seat covers?


    Remove the headrests. Then slide the cover over the seat back cushion (Photo 5). Push the bottom straps through the gap and into the buckles just like you did on the bottom cushion (refer to Photo 3). Reconnect the bib panel and pull down on the rear portion of the seat back cover to remove wrinkles.

How to remove head rest in a 1998 mustang


loosen up the cover to the seat and reach into the actual seat from underneath, there should be 2 latches. The closest one at the bottom of the headrest system locks the headrest at the upmost position. If you lift up that latch (as in pull it away from the headrest) the headrest should be easy to just push the rest of the way...

I NEED TO REMOVE THE FRONT SEAT HEADRESTS FROM A 2004 FORD MUSTANG CONVERTIBLE.


Lift the headrest to it highest postion. Insert a thin stick parallel to the head rest bar (the side facing the rear of the vechicle) I used a thin paint stirring stick, a Slim Jim is ideal.
Once the stick is inserted (10" give or take) push the head rest down holding the stick steady, then pull the headrest back up and it will come off the seat.
Hope this helps.

How do you remove a headrest from a 2001 mustang?


With the headrest about half way up insert a flat bar between the headrest bar and the opening where it goes in the seat. (back side of head rest) and pull up. It should come right out. I used a paint stir stick when I changed my seat belt loops.
Hope this helps.

How can I remove the headrest


I've removed the headrest on my mustang before. Some seats have a zipper or a way to snap the seat cover at the bottom rear. If you open it you can put your arm up the back of the seat. With the headresat down you can feel the locking piece that retracts when you lift the headrest. If you take a long shaft flat blade screwdriver and place it in between and lift up the headrest it will slide out. Yes, getting the screwdriver in place can be tricky but, it was the only way to remove the headrest without having the correct tool. I hope this can work on your vehicle as well.
