Temp Remove Passenger Front Headrest?

Post by fredthefifth » Fri May 19, 2017 7:42 am

Hi Folks, need to do this to get some large chipboard floorboards home and the headrest stops me being able to secure them properly.

So, can it be removed as a diy job? Done a bit reading and there is mention of a hidden button but also that airbags might be deployed?

Thanks.

Airbags might get deployed of pulling the headrest up???

True, didn't read it properly

Did you bother asking VW if you have active headrests??
