Question about 2002 BMW 5 Series

2002 BMW 525i unable to adjust the passenger headrest.

The passenger headrest is stuck in the highest position. I haven't found a release button or a way to get the seat headrest to move. Any ideas? Not the original owner of the car.

How do I remove front seat headrest in a 2005 chevy uplander

Raise the headrest to its maximum height. Examine the plastic covers the headrest posts stick out of. You are looking for a slide button or a pin hole on the side of the mounting hole.
If there isn't a release button or pin hole they are under a trim cover.
With a small flat screwdriver gently lever the small round cover upwards. This should reveal the release trigger.
If there is no slide button, look for a pin hole on the side of the mount. Unfold a paper clip and insert it into the pin hole. You should hit resistance, move the headrest and paper clip around and the headrest should release and slide out.

Rear head rest stuck in up position any idea .?its the middle one

Some vehicles have a tiny push button or lever under the headrest where you can hardly see it (for release of the headrest.) If you look top and bottom all over the headrest you may find the release somewhere on yours.
God bless your efforts.

How to remove headrest of a 1990 lexus LS400 power seats, can you help please!!!

On both sides of the headrest spokes are little adjuster rings. Adjust the headrest up to the highest position. Push down on both of the adjuster rings. While doing that, pull up on the headrest and it will pop right up. Here is a link to help you with all other questions:

Rear seatbelt stuck behind head rest in locked position

haha we know you didnt do it on purpose, without seeing your problem and the hard to describe issue, i can only recommend to maybe try folding the seat to the cargo position, if that helps. if not, then you will more than likely need to disassemble the rear quarter panel, and unbolt the seat belt retractor from the body of the vehicle. sorry but there is no other way

Removal of headrest on 2005 Ford F150.

The headrest has on obvious button to adjust the height and another button kinda hidden to remove the headrest. The black plastic ring at the base where the metal poles insert into the seat is where the two buttons. You probably noticed the obvious on that sticks out of the side of one of the rings. The other plastic ring contains a similar button that is not noticeable due to it being flush with the side of the plastic ring. Adjust the headrest to its highest position, then locate the "hidden" button on the other plastic ring and depress it while lifting on the headrest and it should come out.
