Head Restraint Removal and Reinstallation

The rear outboard head restraints can be removed if they interfere with the proper installation of the child restraint. The headrest in the rear center seating position is not removable and should be lowered to the stowed position for child restraint installation.

To remove the head restraint:

1. Partially fold the seatback forward. See Rear Seats for additional information.
