How remove head rest


For Hard back seat, you have to pop the hard back seatby unclipping the Top 2 clips. For Soft back seat, there should be a zipper.
anyway, you have open up the back of the seat and disconnect the active head rest connector.
Make sure you disconnect the battery post first, so u dont set off an airbag light.

press the release button on the left, and Stick a Small pick or screw driver to release a hidden button on the right.

Hi how to take off vinyl covers seats on alfa romeo spider 86


IIRC......Remove seat.

Remove rear seat cover by sliding down after removing Phillips screws at bottom.

Inside you will see bolts holding seat head rests to seat.

Under seat are Hog Rings holding seat cover to frame.

Removing a discovery 1 head rest the handle type


The headrest is hold by the two bars of the middle. The bars are engaged in two plastic guides fitted in the seat frame. The bars are locked by two little springs located in theses guides. They are very difficult to remove under the seat foam. The solution I used is a hammer (quite heavy) with a T bar from a sockets set . The diameter was exactly the same as the inner diameter of the plastic guide . Then I inserted this bar at the bottom end of the plastic guides and I hit the bottom of the mettalic bars with these tools and I managed. After the inspection, the springs were bended and I had to give the former shape they had before the removal.
Good luck ( sorry for my poor english but I'm french!)

How do you remove the headrest on a 1996 ford crown victoria?


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.

I have a 1996 Isuzu Rodeo, and cannot seem to figure out how to lay down the back seats. Can anyone please tell me how to do this? Thanks, Jim Cummins: jcmusic@tampabay.rr.com.


There should be two seat belt clip notches in the seat where the seat belt clips comes out the seat. In those two notches there is also a strap in each notch that doesn't look like it really belongs there. Pull those two straps at the same time and the seat pops up and folds down. The back rest part of the seat will then fold down. Remove the head rest section of the back rest and it will fold all the way down.

03. Pull the head rest up as far as it will go
04. Take a small flat head screwdriver and slide in into one of the holes surrounding the head rest poles
05. Move it around until you feel some resistance (if you're lucky, you might be able to move the fabric a little and actually see the clip you need to remove)
06. Wiggle the screw driver around until the clip pops out (it may take a while, but eventually it will pop out)
07. Repeat steps 4-6 for the second head rest pole
08. Once you get the head rest off, turn it upside down and you will see two very thin metal discs holding the seat belt guide onto the head rest, you need to remove these
09. Take a screwdriver and pry up on the discs
10. Once you get the discs up a little bit, put some soap on the head rest poles
11. Take a towel and start twisting the discs, continue doing this until they
