I'd agree, but I tried that, and they don't come out with what I'd call a reasonable amount of force.As far as the rear ones, just push in on the little black plastic clips (both on the same side) with raise and lower it. PUsh both at once and lift. You need to pull the seat forward to get it completely out.
You don't have to replace the pins. Only have to push a little the pins and the headrest will come. When you'll replace head-rest, the cutter pins will take place in the groove on the legs. It's very easy and take only couples of seconds.On the front ones - after unscrewing the plastic caps, and pushing down the seat fabric, I see the head of the cotter pin. Just pull out to the side? Did you replace them afterward?
And how did you straighten the legs? They look like pretty sturdy tubing?
I sit upright too and I like that my head rests against the head rest. What I don't like is that the head rest is too low. The top of the head rest is just below the middle of my ear. Unfortunately, the head rest moves on a diagonal rather than vertically. Moving it higher also moves it forward.I sit pretty upright when driving, so the headrest hits me in the back of the head.
Correct, that's what I did. I remove rear head-restraints but don't get rid of them. If I'll have to transport people in the rear I'll put back on those things. But for me, 99.9% of the time, keep the head-restraint in my basement and fold the rear seat..Makes you think twice about removing rear head-restraints in cars. I've always liked removing them just so the rear window view isn't obstructed by anything, but not at the cost of my passengers' safety.
I've removed the rear head restraints in my Prius C for exactly that reason, but I keep them in a bag in the trunk and install them if I have to carry any passengers back there.Makes you think twice about removing rear head-restraints in cars.
