At first glance, pre-2010 Chevrolet Equinox headrests do not appear to be removable, but they can be removed with ease. A small safety pin latches the headrests and holds them in place. To release the pin and remove the headrest, insert a small object against the pin and the headrest will slide off.

Step 1

Push the button around the headrest base and raise the headrest. This should make visible a small hole around the plastic base.

Step 2

Straighten a paper clip small enough to enter the hole. Insert the paper clip as far as it will go.

Step 3

Pull up on the headrest to remove it from the seat. Repeat the procedure for each headrest.

Step 4

Reinstall the headrests by lining up the posts with the mounts, then pushing straight down.
