The manual rear head restraints can be removed, if required, e.g., to fit larger child seats.


Two people are required to carry out this operation.

To remove a manual rear head restraint, first move it to the fully raised position. Then:

  1. Press the release tag* below the stem collar and simultaneously press the button on the other stem collar.

    *To locate the release tag, press down on the seat material in the area shaded on the illustration.

  2. A second person is now required to lift out the head restraint.


Always store a removed head restraint securely. In the event of an accident, an unsecured object could cause serious injury or death.

To refit a head restraint, make sure it is facing in the correct direction. Insert the stems of the head restraint into the stem collars and push the head restraint downward.
