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

You would have to disable any srs system ,so as to not
set off the air bags & remove the upholstery from the seat

Then modify the head rest to you the way you want it

ok so is a brand new vehicle , the dealer should be coming to you to get this sorted out and supply you with a loan car if needed, if the dealer refuses contact the manufacturer directly,if anyone else where to work on the vehicle it would invalidate the vehicle's warrenty so contact the dealer you got the vehicle from

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.

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.
