The first step is to determine which headrest package is compatible with your vehicle. To determine fit you'll need a tape measure and access to your esiting vehicle headrests.
1) Are your car headrest pillows removable?
For most vehicles the headrest pillow is removable. The headrest pillows are attached to the seat with two metal posts. If your car seats are one entire piece where the pillow does not remove, I'm sorry to say car headrest monitors will not be compatible with your vehicle. You may wish to consider one of our flip down DVD monitors for your vehicle.
2) What are the post measurements?
Okay, it's time to get the tape measure and measure your posts. You are measuring two things, the distance between the two posts center to center and the diameter of the posts. We have a video to help explain how to measure your posts.
TIP: One trick I learned to help me measure the post diameter is to use open ended box wrenches. a 10mm box wrench will fit snug around 10mm diameter posts. Same is true for a 12mm or 14mm box wrench. Because they don't make a 12.7mm box wrench because it is 1/2" you can use a 1/2" box wrench to find 12.7mm posts
If you don't have box wrenches and only have a tape measure to measure inches this guide will help:
10mm = 0.39 inch (slightly over 5/16")
12mm = 0.47 inch (slightly over 7/16")
12.7mm = 0.50 inch
14mm = 0.55 inch (slightly under 9/16")
BONUS TIP: Only OnFair offers ALL METAL POSTS for all the different sizes. It's call our VERSA Headrest Post package. You will see the cheap China alternative is to offer plastic sleeves for everything bigger than 10mm.
Most headrest packages include posts that adjust to fit a range of distances usually between 4.5" and 8" center to center. If your posts are between this range, you'll be able to select from a variety of packages on future steps. If your post distance is outside this range, your selection will be very limited to on your model selection and will need to watch this feature carefully.
Write down your measurements and keep them handy. You'll need them in future steps to narrow down the field to packages that will fit your vehicle.
