Just bought full leather to replace my Avantgarde half 'leather' one. Have managed everything apart from rear headrests which I cannot fathom out.They are the electric drop down type. Any ideas how I get them out?

MALCOLM, COULD YOU PLEASE ALSO EMAIL ME THE INSTRUCTIONS FOR REMOVAL OF THE W 211 REAR HEADRESTS ? ONE SOLENOID GONE AND THE WIRING HAS A PROBLEM.

Hi, I myself have bought a full leather to replace the standard avantgarde interior.
I have fitted everything except the rear head rests, but all i have been given is the headrest itself.

Therefore i need to remove my original ones of the poles and fit the leather ones, do you know how to do this?

Many Thanks in advance.

Craig

Hi Adrian, I'm sorry to say that Television (Malcolm) passed away towards the end of last week,

I suggest you open a new thread asking for assistance in removing the headrests,
