Front Seat Headrest

I'm trying to install new seat covers on a 2008 Yukon. I cannot figure out how to remove the headrest. I've used a paperclip in the hole on one post but nothing happens. Can you help me??

Neither of the answers are actually correct.
Yes you need to press the button PLUS use a number drill or similar in the little hole on the opposite headrest leg @ the same time. The headrest will come out very easily when you do bothe these things @ the same time.

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.

How can I remove front row seat headrest?


Most volvo headrest can be removed by releasing the catches which are on the back of the headrest on some models and on the front on others I believe on 960 they are on the back. To release the seat on a 960 look where the shafts should be then follow it down on the back where the seat back top stops then goes in press around that area you should be able to find the catch there pull up on the headrest while releasing the catch you have to do this on both sides. The headrest should come off this also works on 740 and 760 series the volvo 780 is a different story the only way to get the headrest off on that is to disassemble the seat

Front Headrests


There is a plastic cover, about 1 1/8" diameter, on the base of the post on each side. You can remove it with a screw driver by carefully prising upwards at the edge. They just clip down.
Once these are lifted away from the seat, you will see the wire clip that locks the headrest into the seat. Remove the clip on each post, and you can then remove the headrest.
Reassembly is the reverse.

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.

There should be a button on the base of the headrest to raise & lower it. Push the button, and lower it. With the button pushed, raise the headrest, and pull hard. They ARE tight.
