Thumbs up W124 Power Headrest Fix...Easy DIY!

Passenger side headrest on my W124 was fixed under extended warranty two years ago. Driver's side headrest just stopped going down about two weeks ago.

Did a search and found what I needed to remove the seatback for access. Went to the garage and did just that (will be easier the second time now that I know how to remove it).

Called Phil at PartsShop and told him what I needed. He handled the order in a cordial, professional manner, even though it was a relatively inexpensive part.

UPS guy showed up today as I pulling into the driveway. Went to the garage and swapped out the part in a matter of was just that simple!

Reattached the seatback and VOILA! Repair completed!

Not sure what the dealer would have charged for that service, but if I figure their labor rate and multiply PartShop prices by two, they would have done this for about $170! Cost me $18!

This forum ROCKS!!!!! Many of us would not be able to afford to keep our MBs running if it wasn't for this site!
