The MANUAL does not cover this and when I was at the dealership they pulled up what Jeep had for Dealer Service Support it was OLD. And even told me it couldn't be done.

But I do owe thanks to jacko15, while the diagram was old his photo of the underside of the headrest is what tipped me off to the clips. Rather than the older style slots in the diagram.

Thanks again

Shocking not one post with the word sawsall...

Glad you figured it out, many Fire Depts will help you. What type of Car seat do you have ? Be good future reference for my little man.

New 2014 Grande Cherokee Limited owner here.
I'm trying to figure out rear headrest removal as well.
Has anyone been successful getting the metal rods out of the seat after removing the padded headrest?

TIA,

David in MD

+1. I would love to remove the metal rods.

I haven't even been able to get the headrest secured back onto the rods; it just slides freely up and down. I'm not sure I got the clip (only had 1 clip on mine) back on correctly. It should not be this hard...

Have you considered getting new child seats that work with what you have? My kids are grown and gone, but I certainly would not want 4 spears sitting back there on the top of the seat backs.

Nothing to do with the child seat; I have back seats folded and my child is a dog We sleep in the back of the car; space between front and back seats is wasted. Even when in the city, and back seats are folded, headrest is on the way of everything... one cannot put anything between the seats.
Totally agree with wriggly1dog, what are they smocking @ Chrysler?
Is the grinder the only solution?

I thought this thread was about fitting child seats. Quoted the wrong post, now corrected.
