There is a little button at the base of the headrest that you press in while pushing it down.

    This button will not allow the headrest to go all the way back down, as in most vehicles. I am thinking that it is some type of safety feature for tall people so that it can't be put all the way down, thus not preventing possible whiplash.

I have a 2009 VW Routan van and it is blowing hot air in the front but cold air in the back when turning on the heater.

You should have the "Hot & Cold" lever which has a cable that opens and closes the water flow that allows heat to go to the rear heaters. Might of come off from lever, it's broken or frozen.
If you are mechanically inclined, recommend you check this component first.

I was wondering if you could give me some things to check on my van won't start and we tried jumping it. The lights all come on with full charge . So I was wanting to know if there is a reset button...

if u unplug your battery for acouple hours it will reset youre ecu/cpu. (everything) does it turn over? or absolutly nothing? if nothing sometimes ur battery loses so many electrolytes it can't retain a charge therefore jumping won't help. new battery first step! local junkyards probably have a good battery for $20. Let me know if this helps.

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

Push the little clip in on top of the seat, by the chrome rail, pull the headrest up and slide out of the hole. Push the back of the seat back, lift up the bottom seat and tilt forward. Lay the back seats down. Done.
