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.

Removal
  1. Unscrew front seat head rest guide rod retainers (610A18).
  1. Pull up on front seat back head restraint (611A08). Compress foam in area of front seat head rest guide rod sleeves (610A16).
  1. Remove front seat back head restraint positioning springs. Pull front seat back head restraint up and out.

SOURCE: 1995 Ford Crown Victoria - shakes/vibrates @ highway speeds.

Alignment has alot to do with the tires not shimmying.. Like zero toe setting. Loose componants like tie rod ends and the idler ar worn. You can ck for excess front end play by holding the front and back of the wheel and pushing and pulling on it, like rocking it. OR have someone rock the steering while you watch where the play is from underneath. By rocking I mean turn the steering wheel back and forth. Look at all th joints and pivot points for excess play, which is, movement not immediate to the rest of the steering system. Tire balance is very important. Wheel hop is a sign of a bad tire and it overtaxes the shock absorber. Shocks don't cause shimmy because they are a vertical movement controlA shimmy is lateral or side to side.Wheel balance weights must be spit. If a 2 oz. weight is needed to balance the tire, Oe once should be on the inside of the wheel and one ounce on the outside directly across from each outher.. Loose wheel brgs will cause shimmy, but they would not last long. Caster setting on the wheel alignment will also cause shimmy. Like on a shopping car. too much caster causes the wheel to start fluttering and is very hard on other componants. This may be why you have worn tie rod ends and a bad pitman arm. Worn control arm bushings and ball joints directly affect titre wear and can only be feltwhen the front end hits a dip and detected by side wear on the tire edges. Summary: replace the tie rod end and have the car aligned. Good Luck, -Ned_ sorry about the book

SOURCE: starter is shot

The starter is located at the rear of the engine I believe on the passenger side bolted into the bell housing. First you need to remove the cables from the starter. Make sure you remember where they go so you can connect the new starter correctly. Make a picture or do like I do and take a photo to refer back to if you get lost. Next there are large blots securing the starter to the bell housing that need to be removed. Take out the bottom one first than the top. With all the above done the starter will drop out.

SOURCE: Headrest removal on a 1999 Ford Crown Victoria LX

If you unscrew the black pieces around the posts, lift them up and pull back gently on the seat material. There are 2 wire clamps around each post. Simply use a flathead screw driver and stretch the clamp to release the headrest.

How to remove head rest in a 1998 mustang


loosen up the cover to the seat and reach into the actual seat from underneath, there should be 2 latches. The closest one at the bottom of the headrest system locks the headrest at the upmost position. If you lift up that latch (as in pull it away from the headrest) the headrest should be easy to just push the rest of the way...

Can the headrest for a 2010 ford expedition be replaced with an aftermarket so not to have that angle?


I know five (5) people who purchased the 2009 or 2010 Expedition. All 100% of them have complaints of the headrest hurting their neck. I know folks that won't even drive their new 2010 Expedition because it hurts their necks, and the dealer won't take it back! If enough people tell ford about the problem, erhaps Ford will post a Technical Service Bulletin (TSB) to tell dealers how to fix the problem. It is possible to build safe headrests that do not hurt necks during normal driving: just look at the competition. The headrest is not the right equipment to sacrifice comfort. Neck pain causes distraction and is a safety issue. Ford should be as concerned about liability from wrecks caused by headrest pian distractions as they are about the rear impact safety. Complain to Ford!

How do I take off a headrest, so I can put on seatcovers


On your headrest, there will either be a push button that you can push to release the headrest, or on some models, there's actually a tiny hole that you will need to push something like a paperclip into to release the headrest

How can I remove the headrest


I've removed the headrest on my mustang before. Some seats have a zipper or a way to snap the seat cover at the bottom rear. If you open it you can put your arm up the back of the seat. With the headresat down you can feel the locking piece that retracts when you lift the headrest. If you take a long shaft flat blade screwdriver and place it in between and lift up the headrest it will slide out. Yes, getting the screwdriver in place can be tricky but, it was the only way to remove the headrest without having the correct tool. I hope this can work on your vehicle as well.

How do I disconnect a headrest on a 1994 GMC 2500


Okay...two ways....

1. You pull straight up and with some force.

2. There should be a little small push button lever that is almost flush against the plastic trim piece at the base of the headrest. Push it in (doesn't go in far at all!!!), and lift up on the headrest at the same time.

To replace the headrest, push the little button in and push the headrest down....that's it.
