I have a 2012 malibu and looked this same thing up because I just put on a seat cover, on the driver's side head rest, looking at it from the back seat on the driver's side, there's the normal looking latch that let's you adjust the headrest down, but on the right side you'll see a little indentation in the plastic that you can also push down and if you press both at the same time, you can remove the headrest.

Lift the headrest to the full upright position, and you will notice on the plastic piece where the headrest rod goes into, there should be a small hole in the plastic piece, insert a small tool or paperclip, and then pull the headrest off

Try this i found this at another site sounds like it should work


01. Sit in the rear seat facing the front seat you will be removing the head rest from
02. Lean the front seat back so you are looking down at the head rest
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

How do you remove rear headrests?


Tracy, Some just pull straight up and out, there may be a pin hole, lever or button just under head rest which will release and allow head rest to be pulled up or pushed down, it does take some force as they do like to get stuck.
Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

How to remove headrest from 93 Chev 3500?


Pull up the head rest, then get a paperclip, stretch the paperclip straight. On the head rest, at the base of the two posts of the head rest, there will be a small hole, put the paperclip into the hole and press, and at the same time, pull up on the headrest. Once you push in on the lock tab with the paperclip, the head rest should come out with ease.

How to remove headrest on 2006 sebring


Just removed them on a 2005 Sebring sedan. Easier with two people but one can manage just fine. The trick is a tiny hole in the plastic "sleeves" that the metal posts on the headrest slide into. You'll need a small poking device-Allen wrench, drill bit, tiny screw driver, whatever. The hole is on the right side of the right side sleeve on each headrest (as you're sitting in the back seat facing forward) and is perpendicular to the direction the metal rods go into the sleeves. Insert your small poker and depress the plastic button on the other plastic sleeve simultaneously while your helper pulls up on the headrest.

I just bought a 2012 Civic EX-L and my wife has a big problem with the head rest pushing her forward. Our 2002 Accord EX-L did not do that.


Is it possible to swap out the front head rest with a rear one? Sometimes you can't do this as the metal rods for the headrest are spaced out differently front and rear.

You might be able to remove the head rest and reverse it but this would NOT be recommended as the passenger may not have adequate protection in a car accident, the head would pull too far back causing severe whiplash.

How to remove the headrests to put seat covers on for a 1989 crown victoria?


90% of head rests just pull out. the others will have a button where the headrest goes into the seat. If yours doesn't have the button, then push the headrest down and **** it up with some force and it will come out. Just be carefull you don't hit yourself in the face with it. Been there done that

07 Expedition second row seat head rest cover plate removal


There should either be a little button at the base of the headrest that you push, or a small hole in the rod part, with a hole in it. Push in the hole with a pen, or a small nail to release the headrest.
