Front Blue Headrests off 1981 300TD...

I purchased these thinking they were for rear, but they are fronts. Nice condition. If you need them, shoot me an offer.

The difference between front and rear headrests in a wagon are quite trivial. I am 99% sure that you can use the headrests in the rear of your wagon with no problems. The brackets are entirely different, but that's another story.

The two differences that I can think of:

1. Wagon rear headrests don't pivot, front headrests do. So what.
2. Wagon rear headrests have a "knotch" for the lock that keeps it from coming out. Front headrests have more of an "indentation" for the lock that keeps them from coming out.

I've found front headrests in the 2nd row seats of a wagon before...
