Just an FYI... I placed the third row headrests in their holders in the storage well, but noticed that there were several indentions in them. It turns out that there were several sharp places on the bottom of the lid from when it was molded. I removed the headrests until I can file them off, but I didn't want anyone to put them back there and forget about them.

Yep, noticed the same thing

Yes, those little nubs are leaving marks in my leather. Let me know if they file down easily -- it's the kind of thing I bet I forget about...

Re: Yep, noticed the same thing

Me too. I noticed those small marks on the head-rests as well. I am going to take them off from their slots and spread them in that compartment on the floor.

dremel tool is a rotary "zip" tool <$80. Don't bother getting one for this. I just resolved problem with a razor blade in under 1 minute. The "nubs" cut/pop right off cleanly. Sanding or filing would likely blemish the plastic. On the difficulty scale of 1 to 10, this one is a 0.

So, you just take those pointed stuff off with the razor blade ? I will take a look today.

Thanks

Thanks!

I hadn't even noticed! And thanks for mentioning a razor blade. I would have probably come up with some kind of elaborate way to do it and make the job 10 times harder than it had to be!

I had the same problem and used the razor blade technique. Quite easy and it solved the problem. Thanks for the great solution. :)

flipping headrests

Be careful flipping the headrests. I had them flipped to avoid the nubs (until I cut them off) and tried to insert the headrest into the seat backwards. It goes in the holes, but tries to poke through the back of the seat.

Storing Headrests

Can someone tell me how to put the headrest posts into the holes in the storage area? The holes in the storage area are wider apart than the posts of the headrests.
