Question about 1996 Toyota RAV4

2009 toyota rav4 rear headrests

Would really like to purchase this car, but the rear seat headrests (not to mention the rear seats in general) make the seating terribly uncomfortable for my daughter. They push her head forward awkwardly! Her head reaches above the top of the seat, so removing them is out of the question. At least I can turn mine around in the front. The back seat rests don't work in a backwards position. If I can't come up with a solution, I'll have to give up the toyota. Any ideas??

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

Remove front headrest


There is a button you need to press at the bottom of one of the headrest rods (it is actually part of the main seat), but it is located right where the rods of the headrest enter.

My child has gotten my seat belt tight around the back of my 2009 Ford Expedition headrest in the back seat of the second row. Is there anyway to take the headrest off so that I can get the seat belt...


Yes if you lift the headrest upwards it will raise and you may be able to lift it out, you may need to press a button on the seat top to do so.

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.

How do you remove the front headrest for a 2009 bmw 335i


You can't remove the front headrests from 2009 or later BMW's without first disconnecting internal wiring that runs inside 1 of the posts for each headrest to the inside the seat. This wiring is part of the Active Restraint Safety System that was new for 2009.

If you force it and break the wire you will at a minimum need to spend about $300 at the dealer to resplice the wire by taking the back off the seat.
