Hi. It's simply a matter of pushing it back into place. For some reason, occasionally my drivers headrest pops up/out. Within a minute a fault comes up on the dash indicating a fault with the Airbags !
Back to how to reset the headrest. This advice was given to me by my local mercedes dealer. Kneel on the front seat facing the rear. With both hands push downward fully and only them start to move the upper half of the headrest backwards to re engage. Easier said than down, and it takes quite a lot of effort. I normally push my chest against it too help. Remember to pulley push it down, as it needs to lock in place. It takes me five or six goes to get it in as it's quite stiff.
I found that a 5 amp fuse normally blows in the rear fuse box, and replacing it solves the Fault on the dashboard. Good luck, and if you simply can't do it, go to your Local garage MB or other.
PS if anyone knows why mine has suddenly started to do this, let me know?
