The W204 is a model of car manufactured by German automaker Daimler AG under the Mercedes brand name. The car is part of the company's C-Class range of vehicles and has been manufactured since 2008 in various factories around the world. The W204 has removable headrests installed on the back seats, which can be taken out should you need extra storage space. Automobile headrests should not be removed from seats occupied by passengers due to their important role preventing whiplash-type injuries. Allow 5 minutes to remove your W204 headrests.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Open the boot, and pull the backrest release levers on the back of the rear seats. Tip the seat forward slightly.

  2. 2

    Grip the headrest, and pull firmly upward until it reaches its highest setting.

  3. 3

    Pinch and hold the plastic release catch where the metal headrest supports enter the seat.

  4. 4

    Pull the headrest up and out of the seat with your free hand. Repeat for each headrest you want to remove.
