Q: What if the head restraint is unable to lift or remove?

asked by on

The 2015 Nissan Sentra SR has rear headrests that are sewn in and unable to lift or remove. How does one use the latch system to tether a carseat securely?

My car has 14000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there. There is a notch on the side of the plastic base that the headrest rides on top of the seat. Push in the notch and pull up on the headrest and it will adjust for you. If you need further assistance with adjusting your headrest, then seek out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you.
