How to Remove Headboard?

I'd like to reupholster the bedroom headboard in our 2001 LY XC360. I've done it before (in an 85 Classic 345), but I can't figure out how to get the darned thing off the wall, which is pretty much an essential first step.

Has anyone done this (preferably without destroying the headboard)? Any hints gratefully received.

I removed the headboard on my '02 Classic just last week. Of course, there is no way to know if yours is the same. Mine had 2 decorative buttons. Removing these buttons revealed the Phillips screws that attached the board to the aluminum wall. The buttons were held on by nails that fasten the round metal button disk to the plywood headboard.

That did it, Dan! Got the button do-dads off with a pry bar and - voila! - there were the screws.

Thanks a bunch. :-)

My headboard just has bunched up fabric over the screws. Takes a bit of looking to find the screws.

Wish I'd seen this sooner!

I wish I'd seen this sooner - it would've been a bonus to have helped someone on my very first post since joining! lol
Amazing how many things remain the same (design-wise) over the years. I'm in the midst of giving my newly-acquired '76 Sovereign 31' a freshening-up and just removed the headboard two days ago - with the exact same screws/covers. My '76 is in remarkable condition yet the board material (heavy cardboard? Particle board? thin-sliver-of-MDF?! lol) didn't look... shall I say "healthy" on the backside. I plan to take it to a furniture repair shop so they can make a new padded fabric front for the wood I'll supply them, once I settle on a colour scheme.

Glad it worked out for you - all the best on your project!

Cheers,

The headboard is completely recovered, but not yet back in place.

Rather than use the A/S nail-in button covers, I decided to use the same sort of snap-on covers that I used in the Classic 345 job. These involve running the mounting screw through a grommet and then re-mounting the headboard to the wall. The pre-covered "buttons" then just snap into place over the grommets. Very tidy, perfect positioning, much easier than trying to wield a hammer in a tight spot, and no chance of hitting any wiring concealed in the wall.

When the button covers arrive, the headboard will go back up.

Now, on to the lambrequins and valances. ;-)
