Question about 2001 BMW 5 Series

1 Answer

Hi I recently purchased some headrest DVD players for my BMW X5 2004 (3.0L D ). The black leather front seats have a hard back panel which appears to be stuck to the seat - is this correct ? I need to remove the seat backs to feed the cables through and am concerned that if I damage the backs I won't be able to refit them. Are there clips to detach ? Thank you for your assistance.

All the ones i have seen are just tight fit.. there is no secret latch or anyrthing.. Try protecting the leather seat and putting a little WD40 on the shaft wait a little while and apply some muscle.

I need to remove a headrest so that I can install a child's safety seat. The seat is too high with the headrest on. How can I do that?


I have a 2010 Santa Fe and this is how I did it. Remove the back panel of the seat, there are 5 or 6 plastic clips that hold the seat back cover on, start at the bottom of the seat back panel and work your way upwards, pull the panel downwards and it should come off. Once the panel is removed, You will see a black cable running down the back of the seat. At the bottom of the cable, you will see a black plastic box with two clips holding it shut. Open the cover and pull away the cable from the box on the side that runs up to the headrest, once it releases the cable, remove the cable end from the holder inside. From there, just hold the headrest adjustment lock in and push upwards hard until it comes out with the cable.

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.

Headrest removal


Look at the top of ur seat, between the two shafts of ur headrest. Beside one of the posts is a black plastic base on which one side has a button u push. That allows u to remove the headrest. U might have to jimmy side to side a bit as they are somewhat hard to remove at times, just do so with ur finger pushing the release mechanism.
