Question Ml 500 - Installing headrest DVD system

Hello All,

I have a 2006 ML500 which I purchased about a month ago. We are loving it.
Just had a quick questions about installing onFair Headrest DVD system on it.

Not sure if anyone had done it already and what was the experience. Are there any instruction about how to do it.. there are some videos on youtube but the ML500 headrest is motorized and not like other cars. So I was little scared to open it up. Thanks in advance for any help.

Yes, we tried them when we were considering them for an economical solution. You have to do quite a bit of modification that has to be done for them to work and adjust properly. Also, you probably do not have PRESAFE in a 06 ML, but they won't work at all for PRESAFE equipped cars. We also had some problems with vibration and the drives. They are "economical" units and build quality is accordingly.

Thanks for the reply. What other DVD systems would be a good solution ? I understand that this system would be economical and also make some noise while driving, what else is available that is good ? Once again thanks for your help.
