To keep it in or take it out. It seems to obstruct the rear view. If I take it out, visibility is greatly improved, except for the 3rd brake light. But, I hate to take it out and have something missing.

What do you think?

I didn't like how it obstructed the view either. Since we rarely have more than three passengers in the ML (have the van for more comfort) I took out the middle headrest and put it underneath the seat. It's still there in case someone wants to sit there or I get four passengers.

That looks like a nice spot. I didn't want store it in a plastic bag somewhere and forget where it was.

Thanks for the picture.

asian, you are so good!

I leave mine on the seat. It does obstruct the view, but I just prefer to have it complete. I have considered removing it many times.

I have a box of "things I might need" in the back, which includes the 5th headrest. I tried having it under the seat but it did jostle around and I was afraid of it getting dirty. I suppose that one could wrap a towel around it.

I can't see (pun intended) having impaired rear vision for a seat that is almost never used. Take the center headrest out.

I have never taken any notice of the third brake light. Funny how people see things differently. What is crap to me is having an accident because I didn't see a car.
