Does anyone know if the headrests are adjustable up and down or removable and if so mine appear to be stuck. How do I go about freeing them up.
Thanks in anticipation

I assume that they are the same as the 1500 so yes should pull up, push down (mine do) though getting them out might be tricky as there is a sprung clip on each side at the bottom when fully raised that will need pressing in. I only saw it when I had the seat covers pulled up when replacing the Pirelli webbing on mine.

There is a picture in this thread showing the bracket on the seat the headrest tube goes into: ... hp?t=38025

Hi Terry.

They can be really stubborn to remove. If you tilt the seat back and sit on the back seat with your legs either side of the headrest and give it a good heave, it normally pulls up and out. Just be a bit careful of yourself and don't bang your head on the back window or smash your glasses when it pops out!
