We have tried jerking the seat belts and fastening them but still doesn't move, we have also tried forcing them down while the button is pressed. We have taken the car to Acura they were rude and wanted 100 bucks to "diagnose" the problem . Next problem is, the key fob feature where all windows and moonroof will open, which they will not and it also will not do it using the key, basically after holding the fob unlock button for about 3-4 seconds the red light stops, we have tried all combinations on the unlock button and have turned the passenger lock off, is this a feautre of the RL? Or is it on later models i would assume so since its on the 04 TL's, maybe something is disabled in the navi?

    -thanks for any suggestions in advance The headrests are released down via a solenoid that allows the spring loaded rests to go down. (They are manually pulled up). If you are getting some clicking when the button is pressed then it maybe a relay that controls the mechanism on the parcel shelf. This relay may have a fuse on the output side so the relay clicks but the power is not applied to the headrest solenoids. Check the manual for fuses, if not defined then check all fuses.
    The functionality of the fob and the windows maybe related to either the programming of the fob to the car or the calibration of the window and sunroof up/down end stops. If the battery is low or has been disconnected the car will do strange things. If you have 2 fobs then try the other one. Do you see Welcome driver 1 or driver 2 when turning on the car in the MID? Yes this is a feature of ALL 2nd gen RL's. I suspect calibration if your 2 fobs remember the 2 drivers settings.

Rear head rest stuck in up position any idea .?its the middle one


Some vehicles have a tiny push button or lever under the headrest where you can hardly see it (for release of the headrest.) If you look top and bottom all over the headrest you may find the release somewhere on yours.
God bless your efforts.

Front headrest deployed in my 2007 e350 Mercedes. I was rear ended. No damage to my car but I would like to reset the headrest to its original position. Please help.


to replace that, you might want to just buy a whole new headrest, pull off the old one by holding the adjusments tabs until it comes out, then take the whole thing to part source and show them, they can get you another one or your dealership, then put it back in the exact opposite way you took it out. problem solved.

Removing the headrest on a 2000 ford mustang gt


1. Lift headrest and headrest support bars trim all the way up.

2. Insert tongue depressor (or slim jim) down the front side of the headrest bar. Push depressor down as far as possible. When the depressor is beneath the headrest trim piece, push headrest all of the way down.

3. Lift headrest to remove.

How do you remove the headrest on a 1998 daewoo


hi normally you can do this by...pulling the headrest top its maximum height , at the bottom you should see two black plastic rings, on either side of these rings are little partitions push these inward and pull the headrest at the same it can be a bit awkward but if you do one side at a time or get someone to pull the headrest while you push the clips in can be very helpfull...hope this helps please vote thanks

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.
