Post seat swap in wagons... (for rear headrests)


Does anybody know of a way to add headrests for the rear seats in teh Impreza Wagons?
Neither the OBS or the L (Brighton) wagons have adequate headrests in the back...

any guesses if a swap with a '02 rear seat (which has head rests) will work?

try an upholstery shop, they can do the job right so it looks factory.

Yeah, that's about right.


A certain junkyard-loving member of the i-Club runs Legacy folding seats in his Impreza door-challenged sedan (erm, coupe). He said the installation involved some "squishing".

You might try grabbing the triple headrest rear seat from the Forester. Boy that would look goofy, but probably functional.

I'm sure you know you'll need to remove and store the headrests each time you'll want to fold down the seats. You must be a real nice guy to pay such attention to your passengers

with my driving, I just don't want them getting whiplash...
I remember riding in the back of my friend's Aspire or something like that where the rear bench pretty much only made it to my armpits...
boy that was a rough ride... in city and stop-go highway traffic.

anyway, so Forestor/Legacy benches would have similar seats, of course a bit wider.. hmmm...

yeah, I would definitely have to remove the headrests every time, but the same is true for all cars with full, removable headrests in the back, right?

thanks for the ideas guys.
