How do you remove the head restraints?
While you should never drive or ride without head restraints, there may be times that you need to remove them. For instance, if you’re lowering the second row seats, you’ll need to remove the two outside head restraints (the center can be pushed down to the lowest position). Here’s how to remove them when you need to:
Push the lock release button in.
Pull up on the head restraint.
Pull the head restraint out of the inserts.
Store it somewhere safe.
Never drive or ride without a head restraint in place.
Always replace the head restraints when you’re done.
