You may have to seek the assistance of an upholsterer to make a new head rest to suit you . The other answer is to bend the rest poles back a bit to move it away from the head but this has to be done by an experienced person as the steel will be hard to bend and keep the bars in line to fit the holes

    Pull the headrest completely out, turn it around(180 degrees), reinsert.

You can pry them back and they should tilt. Otherwise pull up real hard and they will come out.

SOURCE: I Need to remove the center headrest in V70 Wagon for FF car seat

The releases are located inside the seat back. This pic will give you a good idea of where to look for them. It's easier with 2 people, one pushing the releases and another lifting the head rest out. http://www.matthewsvolvosite.com/forums/download/file.php?id=1748&mode=view

What can I do to stop pain in neck and/or shoulder blades and between shoulder blades?


Finding good seating is tough.
Better models will have more adjustments on the seats but if you search you may be able to find a mint low mileage 1996 Honda which is like new and then you will have a seat you know works for you.
Otherwise.....you could take your seat with you.
Put it into the newer vehicle.

Remove head rest on 2007 Dodge Nitro RT


Hi Kathryn, I'm glad to help! CAUTION: If you have "ACTIVE HEADREST" you will want to unhook the negative battery cable. NOTE: You'll also need to take the back of the seat cover off and unplug the connector going to the active headrest. Then simply push the release button on the side of the headrest and pull it upward and out of the seat. "HOWEVER" If you do not have the active headrest, then simply push the release and pull upward out of the seat. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Kathryn.

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.

2012 Honda Civix EX - Big Problem w/front seat headrests


I had the same problem with mine for the first month I drove it. 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 enough to keep my head from being pushed forward by the slanted headrest. The headrest is still right behind my head but it is no longer pushed forward painfully. You can't tell that I did anything to the seat from looking at it, but now it's comfortable and I love my Civic.

I just bought a 2012 Civic EX-L and my wife has a big problem with the head rest pushing her forward. Our 2002 Accord EX-L did not do that.


Is it possible to swap out the front head rest with a rear one? Sometimes you can't do this as the metal rods for the headrest are spaced out differently front and rear.

You might be able to remove the head rest and reverse it but this would NOT be recommended as the passenger may not have adequate protection in a car accident, the head would pull too far back causing severe whiplash.

Rear seatbelt stuck behind head rest in locked position


haha we know you didnt do it on purpose, without seeing your problem and the hard to describe issue, i can only recommend to maybe try folding the seat to the cargo position, if that helps. if not, then you will more than likely need to disassemble the rear quarter panel, and unbolt the seat belt retractor from the body of the vehicle. sorry but there is no other way

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.
