Default Headrests

I was reading through my owners manual the other day and found out that my 92 should have tilting headrests. Well mine don't tilt. Does anyone else have this same problem? Is it just the SE that does not have tilting headrests? I do know different seat configurations are available at time of production.

No they don't tilt. They just go up and down. At least that is the way with my manual, cloth seats. Maybe the power leather ones are different??

Default Headrests

Hi guys,

The manual seats in the SE model have headrests that only adjust up and down.

Power seats with console-mounted controls: These are fully articulating and the headrests adjust up and down as well as roll forward and back.

Power seats with seat-mounted controls: I'm not sure about these... hopefully someone who has that seating option could report?

When then I guess my fully powered seats' headrests are either broken or have been replaced with cheap ones by a previous owner then!

I know I have an older Bonneville but my headrests don't get anywhere near my head/neck when I'm sitting normally, even tho they move 4 ways. I do drive lying down tho...at least that'* what everyone who sees the position of the drivers seat says anyways
