As the thread topic states, I have a 2 door 323 coupe with rear headrests. I hardly EVER carry passengers and when I do, itís usually only one person who sits in the front.
My problem is, it's hard to see other cars out the back because the headrests are in the way. Is there any way to take these things off? I've pulled up on the metal shafts rather hard, and pulled up on the headrest itself only to find out you can vertically adjust it, and that's about it. Please tell me there's a method to remove them. The manual says almost nothing about them.
I drive in lots of heavy, fast moving traffic every day and I like to see whats going on around me.
I dont want them GONE, I just want to remove them for the summer when I'm driving 40 miles everyday with nobody else in the car. I want to put them back in later... If I ddidn't care, I'd bust out the bolt cutters
I'm beginning to think that you can't remove them without a lot of disassembly...
the little hand latch things, yah, I folded the seats down and looked where the poles for the headrest would be and there's just few holes on the metal frame of the car, I stick my fingers in there and looked inside with a flashlight and don't see ANY sort of latching mechanism :\
You have to be able to remove the headrests to remove the rear deck!
I'm probably going to have to remove the rear deck or start disassembling the rear cab to figure it out. I'll let you guys know.

... Which I promptly did, lol. That window was DISGUSTING, I did it about 5 months ago with the headrests in and did a half ass job just so I could see better. I drive with the windows down alot, I think road grime and crap just collected on it from all the wind rushing around it.
