Got my car back from MB service and noticed that the headrest no
longer moves down to my preferred position for it. It remains high
and has only about 1/2" of movement. Dealer (on phone) says there's a
button on the seat to release/reset the range but I cannot find it.
Is there a way to reset this?
Please don't suggest going back to dealer as the hassle of doing that
in Manhattan ain't worth the inconvenience.
I just had the motor replaced on mine...it started out like yours, and
eventually stopped moving altogether... if it is in warranty go back...
and get it replaced...hey i LIVE at the dealer on my c320 wagon!!!
Thanks for the reply. It is in warranty and will be next year when I
bring it back for scheduled maintenance and inspection. Until
then, I will live with it since the inconvenience of the service
location excedes the inconvenience of the headrest. So far, I have
only been to the dealer for the scheduled services and I intend to
keep it that way!
OTOH, there are often resets for many of the computer-controlled
functions and I am hoping someone knows one for this.
The headrest on my '99 E320 did something like that, too. I found that if I
sat forward so that my weight was not pressing on the seat back that the
headrest would move correctly. That got me long enough to get to the dealer
and have it replaced under warranty.
