Front & Rear Head Rests Inoperable

268 Views 1 Reply 2 Participants Last post by  rabbit188
Greetings all! Just picked up a 2003 E50 that appears to have been pretty well maintained. Runs very well. However, the front head restraints are inoperable, and the rear do not pop up or down. Is there possibly a fuse, or vacuum hose, or God forbid a module or servo that can be at fault? Is there a schematic?

Searched the forum but can't find anything.

Any help is appreciated!

Although I do not own a W211, I did own a W210, the previous model. In that car, the rear head rests did not "pop up", they only go down. In other words, you had to manually lift the head rests to the raised position. The button for the rear head rests, when pushed, would only lower them. Try raising them by lifting them up by hand. Then, with the ignition on, push the button and see if they drop back down. I'm afraid I don't have any ideas about the front ones.
