Hi, I'm trying to put seat covers on my 2001 Chevy Silverado and I can't seem to separate the head rest from the seat. It goes up and down but not off. Thanks, Cathy

On the plastic pieces surrounding the insertion hole on top of the seat back,there is a very very tiny hole on the side of this piece of plastic. You need to insert a rigid piece of wire or a very fine nail of some kind into this small hole and push until you feel it give, then pull up on the headrest. it should come out. You have to do this on each of the two insertion holes. It's easier with two people.

2001 Chevy Silverado 1500 How does rear seat

There is no adjustment that I know of. I had a 2000 Silverado and the only adjustment was the ability to raise the bottom of the seat up to place large items in the back.

You can go to most any junk yard and pick your own replacement.
Some places don't let you go get your own part, so take a pic of the damaged part in your rig and show them what you are looking for.

It should be the same part from most Chevy/GMC trucks from 1990-2001

My heated seats in my 2003 chevy silverado 2500 hd turn on to high automatically when i start the truck. how do i fix this or atleast unhook them untill winter?

well you can't just pull the plug or unhook the seat from below,, the motor for adjusting the seat seems to be on the same circuit, unless your the only one who drives the vehicle, then you could yank the circuit breaker for the seats , what it sounds like to me with the heat issue is that you have a shorted element in the seat itself, and they are pretty lame as heaters go, Chevy sells a replacement which consists of a piece of tape with the element inside of it, and you have to remove the covers and weave this replacement through the seat,, Ive only done one, but you could see all the burn spots on it,

The power seat on my 2001 chevy blazer doesn't work

you can't realistically buy a new one so your choices are:

find a similar used non power seat in a junkyard, unbolt yours and bolt it in. then buy seat covers which more or less match the rest of your interior

find a similar used working power seat in a junkyard, unbolt yours and bolt it in. then buy seat covers which more or less match the rest of your interior.

find a used similar working power seat in a junkyard, unbolt yours and swap the internal working electrical parts from the one in the junkyard, then bolt yours back in.
