I ran into the same issue when I was performing this change... http://www.mynissanleaf.com/viewtopic.p ... 73#p107873" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;mwalsh wrote:Another nugget for you (though you may have run into this already).....you can't remove the US model headrests while the seat backs are in the upright position.

Nice! Excellent tip and photos! I gotta try that... Those head rest really do block the rear view when backing up (I dont trust the backup camera sometimes).palmermd wrote:Nice tip Gary. I did this and it does work great. I had removed them at first, but I think this is a better solution for long term storage of the headrests. I tried them a couple of different ways, but in the end I have them facing the normal direction but I put the inside leg into the outside hole. The outside leg is behind the seat between the seat-back and the trunk cover. The headrest rubs the side of the car when raising the seat-back, but I don't intend to lower them often so I don't believe this will be a problem.garygid wrote:Rotate Rear Headrests with one support in place, for much better visibility ...
Thats not a bad ideagarsh wrote:I continue to just fold down the rear seats.
It's easier and faster to flip the rear seat back up when you have a passenger than it is to replace a headrest.
