Call the service department at your local dealer or 1-800-Mercedes.

Not sure why you want to do this (safety issue?) but there must be a way to do it for cleaning or repairs.

Just wanted to install one of those coat hangers on the headrest but I couldn't get the darn thing off. I intend to put it back in place.

Don't you have active headrests? There would be a wire going to the top and this is why you cannot just pull the headrest off, you have to remove the rear panel of the seat and work from there onwards.

But the coat hanger you have cannot be an MB accessory? Buy one from MB and your current problem goes away.

I have a manual headrest. Where are the screws located on the seat panel? I tried looking for them but could not find them.

I thought all W204's have active headrests (not the same as electric). I wouldn't try to remove it myself.

Are you sure you need to remove the headrest to install the hanger? The one I have (from BMW) I've used on my last three cars, including the Mercedes. You raise the headrest, adjust the hanger so it's on tight and lower the headrest down again..

Yea, that's what the instructions say for this type of hanger. Anyway, I'm just going to return the hanger and get one that doesn't require removing the headrest.
