Default Rear seat headrests removal?

Anyone know how to remove/raise these things on a Crew Cab? It's impossible to clean the window behind them without removing them, but when I push in the base I can only lift them about a 1/4".

Yea, on my truck the rear seat bottoms lift up and the seat backs "lean" forward giving you a little access to the glass behind the headrest...

There should be a small tab on the base of the metal upright that allowss you to depress it and remove the headrest, unless I'm mistaken. I've never tried or had occasion to take out the rear headrests....but they should be removeable.

They come out really easy. Can't remember if it has a tab to push or not but slides out nice and goes back in just as easy. I hope this helps you out at all.

Wiggle one side and then the other while holding the release tab. Work it out a little at a time. I had to take one of mine out for my boy's car seat to sit flush...

Ditto here... there is a release push, and then wiggle out... new ones that haven't moved are a bit sticky...

I wonder if the 2010 rear seat back folds forward as well? I would love to be able to clean the window...

I am pushing the release tab. Guess I'll try wiggling it back and forth and see what happens.

Just lift the seat bottom up into it's folded position and the backrest will tilt forward. No need to remove the headrest.

These guys are right ,with the back seats leaning forward press the tab,lift up the head rest and out they go. Had mine out since I got the Ram 1500 QC 4x4 home.
