Does anyone have the part numbers for the smaller UK Nissan Leaf headrests? How much $ would a pair cost?

Thx.

Rotate Rear Headrests with one support in place, for much better visibility ...
for Geeks! :D

Just fold the rear seat backs forward, it's quick and simple to do from driver side rear door.
You can quickly put them back up when you need rear seats.
I leave them down most of the time covered with a furniture moving blanket to protect them. This is also convenient to carry my electric R/C airplanes to the park every chance i get.

My rear headrests were gone the day I got the car! They now live in a plastic bag in the storage closet. I also discovered that, depending on how far back the front seats are, the rear seats will sometimes not fold flat if the rear head rests are in place without hitting the back of the front seats...

put them in the car's boot at the dealer.
In two months, they have been back up once.

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.
