REAR HEAD RESTRAINT REMOVAL

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

NOTES

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.

WARNING

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.
