The rear head restraints are important safety features that should remain on in almost all circumstances. However, the rear head restraints can sometimes interfere with child restraint systems. If this is the case, you can remove the rear head restraints by doing the following:

  1. Fold the rear seatback partially forward.

  2. Press and hold both of the buttons on the rear head restraint. These buttons are located where the restraint meets the seatback.

  3. While holding the buttons, pull up on the head restraint until it has been removed.

  4. Lock the seatback back into place.
