Question about Volvo 850
Would seem simple wouldn't it. Most cars have a latch that will let you simply pull it out. I have spoke to supposed Volvo experts that tell me that the seat has to be taken apart. Beleive it or not, I got this solution from a junkyard, from a guy who removes parts for a living for resale. He says the 850 wagon has plastic trim pieces at the base of the headrest. You have to pop the pieces off and it will reveal a metal pin or clip that keeps the headrest from pulling out. Simply take a pair of needle nose plyers and pull the clip and your headrest will come off. I hope this is very helpful! Good Luck!

If you pull real hard they will pop out, or pull up, squeeze together or pull apart the rods and pull up on it. Some headrests have the release button that you can hold while pulling up to remove. Not sure about your model.

This is how you remove the front headrest, so the rear's are similar:
there are release tabs .The release tabs are a bit hard to feel, but slide your fingers down the back of the seat, just as wide the headrest. You will feel 2 tabs, below the pleather, just before the indentation for the seat back area. Push in the buttons, one at a time, while lifting on the headrest, and it will slide right out. Remove the plastic trim piece.
Flip the head rest down and you should then be able to access the 2x torx head cap screws that fasten the head rest to the seat.
Work the leather so that the entire unit can be removed.
Instal the cap screws again so that they do not get lost.
Replace the plastic trim piece. ----
If you will carefully press in on the backside of the material of the front seat back following a straight line downward from the headrest post you will come to a tab at the end of the post. Raise the headrest to the upmost position, press with your thumb on the material and against the tab while putting just a small amount of upward pressure on the headrest and the tab will release the post. You have to do this to both posts of the headrests to remove them from the front seats.--- ---- This will help.
