How to remove front seat headrest on a 2008 Ford Escape? Have new seat covers and need to be able to remove them to install.


There is a Pin hole on one side of the headrest in the plastic base. You have someone put a small Allen wrench in the hole till it presses against the metal spring and also on the release on the other side, then pull the headrest out. You will have to press on the spring to put the head rest back in also.

I'm trying to remove the headrest on my 2003 mustang front seat.


On the part that you squeeze to raise the head rest is a little hole on the inside between the 2 bars. You need to push a paper clip or something like that in the hole to release the stop and keep pushing as you lift. Once that is done then you can pull the rest out.

Good luck

Head Restraints Each front seat is equipped with dual-post design front seat back head restraint (611A08). The front seat back head restraint is installed as follows:
  • It travels on dual posts which have notches to engage a spring-loaded catch in the guide.
  • The front seat back spring assembly retains the front seat head rest guide rod sleeve (610A16).
  • The front seat back head restraint is adjustable from its normal position to a raised position of approximately 25 mm (1 inch).
  • Pull up on the front seat back head restraint to raise it. Pushing down will return it to its normal position.
