    Please excuse me if this has been answered before, but can the front seat headrests be turned backward in the Gen 4? I need to do this to all of my cars due to a neurological issue in the family. If they can't be turned around, I might not be able to update to the new generation.

    I did literally a 10 second check in the Dunkin's drive through line this AM.

    The headrest came out and fit turned backward no problem-- but I had a last second vision of it getting permanently stuck facing the wrong way so I aborted the test after inserting it in just a few inch's.

    I am optimistic it would work for me-- and in your case virtually certain it will.

    I find the headrest in relation to back of seat to far forward. I end up sitting with my head pushed forward slightly resulting in a stiff neck. Albeit the rest of the seat is fantastically comfortable.

    So good to know the headrest may be turned opposite direction.
