Front headrests

Post by AuldjoJ » Wed Dec 19, 2018 5:33 pm

Hi ,

Does anyone find the front headrest for the driver very uncomfortable, it seems to be pushed forward, making driving very uncomfortable. Has anyone got any idea how to remove the front headrest so I can take out some of the padding. Or have any other ideas on how to improve the sitting position.
Would really appreciate anyone's help. jpg

You seem to have the seat back in a fairly vertical position? I do not find it a problem as I have a more reclined seat back.

Not sure that helps! :D

Thanks for that I will try changing the seat back. But so far I have tried a few but it's still uncomfortable- maybe I am just too tall! Though the Disco 4 was super fine.

It took me a while to get them into the best position, I was saving a position in memory 1 then trying a different one in memory 2.

After a decent test I then kept one of them and tried another until I eventually found the best one.

I had the same problem and found reducing the height of the headrest worked for me it seems to be deeper at the bottom and narrower higher up.

Few other makes of car I have had either angle or have a button to extend out or retract the head rest to provide variety od settings surprised this isn't standard on a car of this price range...
