Pulling back cover on wagon seat found out the frame has a metal section with holes to install three head rests, two sides and one in the middle, lets hear it for world cars. The head rest moves in a black tube that snaps into these holes. I would bet the front tube and rears are the same. The spacing of the rear head rest rods is narrower (12 cm) than the fronts (15 mm) so a head rest swap wont work. I would bet anyone could snag some JY tubes, and pop them into their seats, after cutting a small hole. I wonder in other Ford product head rests have the same spacing as the backs . Both F and R have 12 mm dia posts, the R are smooth, and the fronts are notched.

Want to make the car safer for passengers.

I would post pictures, but need to get a link to " FF picture for dummies" first.
