How do you remove the head restraints?

The head restraints on your Accord are for both comfort and protection in the event of an accident. However, they’re also designed to be removed. To do so, just follow these steps:

  1. Locate the tab/release button on the head restraint leg.

  2. Push it in.

  3. Without releasing the tab, pull the head restraint up until the legs come free.

To replace the head restraints, simply insert the legs back into the holes on the top of the seat backs. You’ll need to press the release button/tab to adjust it to your liking.
