Hi
Isn't there a little plastic plate at the base of the chrome uprights which you push towards the headrest to release the catch?

Hope this helps. If this "fixes ya", I'd appreciate a rating for my reply, If not, please delay the rating and add a comment with any extra info you have and I will try to think of something else.

Cheers, D.

How to get in trunk true back seat trunk is locked no key


Call a locksmith. If your are lucky,you can take out the lower back seat first,then the upper backseat and there might be enough room to squeeze through. There should be an inside mechanism to open from inside for safety reasons. Good luck.

Trunk access from back seat


Some vehicles have drop down rear seat, should be a button or pull strap to release. Others do not have the option, and would require removal of the lower seat and seat back by removing bolts.

How do I remove the rear seat on a 2001Volvo V70?


I am going to assume you mean the normal rear seats, not rear facing seats in the very back.
The rear seat folds down. The benches fold up from the back. When they are up you can see how to easily remove them if you want.
When the benches are up the backs fold down. There are levers on the top the slide forward to release them so they can be folded down. Tip the outboard head restraints forward by pulling their straps. The center head restraint has a button behind its right-hand support that you push to allow it to be lowered.

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.

Removal of backseat


Hi

If you want to remove the rear seat, 2 screws secure the lower seat squab, then once out, you can see the 2 screws that secure the backrest, once undone, lift to remove.

Are you sure you can´t get to the speaker, from in the trunk ?

Might be a wire adrift ?

Good Luck !

John.

Hot to remove backseat head rest?


Hi, On my 96 Passat there is a little black plastic plate, flush with the top of the backrest, which I push sideways in towards the headrest - it then lefts out.

Hope this helps, D.
