Rear seat / Head rest removal

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I've a 1990 E34 which i'm trying to remove the rear seats from.

I cannot seem to get the headrests off.

I know i'm missing something really obvious here but my head's wrecked and i don't want to break anything so i'm asking...

thanks in advance,

ODB

Don't worry, there's nothing to break there. Just pull up and jiggle them back and forth at the same time. They will come out eventually, just takes some effort.

yeah just keep pulling! then turn the 2 screws ontop of each to release the top. then there are IIRC 4 13mm plastic nuts 1 at each side and 2 under the arm rest!

Thats how it was on my car anyway.

If you've not done it yet, yank out the head rests, there is a plastic plate at the base of where the head rest were with a plastic screw head at each end. Rotate these screws 90 degrees and left them out. Once you done this remove the plastic bolts at the base of the arm rest and give it a yank up and out.

Hope that helps I had the same trouble before I realised that I had to take out the plate at the base of the head rests!
