Part no. “K331-88-240 13” for gen-1 CX-5? Wrong number ⋯

The part numbers for Mazda CX-5 non-US version JDM rear seat headrests are:

2013~2015:
KD49-88-240 02 - Black Touring Cloth with Red Stitching
KD51-88-240 02 - Black GT Leather with Red Stitching
KD51-88-240 34 - Sand GT Leather with Sand Stitching

2016~?:
K070-88-240 02 - Black Touring Cloth with Black Stitching
K072-88-240 02 - Black GT Leather with Black Stitching
K073-88-240 39 - Parchment GT Leather with Parchment Stitching

Don't try to get those JDM headrests from US Mazda dealers. They can't order those.

Punch either K331-88-240 13 or K070-88-240 02 into the search queue and you get the same item..https://www.japanparts.com/parts/list/?skwd=KD49-88-240+02+&keyword.x=48&keyword.y=11
K072-88-240 02 JDM rear headrest is black GT leather with black stitching for US 2016 / 2016.5 CX-5 (KE).

And K331-88-240 13 is for gen-2 CX-5 (KF) which is used on "Exclusive Mode", "KF2 RED".

Not sure if this will help but the last time I purchased the low profile set (Back in 2016), I found them at a UK dealer. Maybe reach out to a UK dealer that ships out of the country and they may be able to find you the brown and with less of a language barrier. I will see if I can find the dealer again as I too need the brown units now.

Update:
Apparently I didn't read this thread completely. I did not know that the Gen2 headrests are taller. Glad I realized that.

Can anyone confirm of the Gen 2 JDM headrests still allow the rear seats to fold forward as the Gen1?

I may just have a local shop cover the Gen1 low profiles I already have with a similar brown leather. I don't think I would want the taller units if they impede seat folding.

Hey everyone, just bringing this thread in 2022. Just wondering if anyone tried/compared these CX-5 JDM (low profile) headrests with the CX-3 headrests (US model) ? The CX-3 ones look like the JDM ones and would maybe more accessible? I'm looking to change mine on my 2016 CX-5. Found the on japanparts.com for 240$ CAD for 2, but wondering if there would be a better price somewhere.

Make sure the posts match up to the holes. You can probably go to a local dealer and try the headrests in your car (either from parts department or a test drive vehicle).

If I remember it correctly, the rear head rest on CX-3 is different from CX-5’s due to the different distance between 2 posts. Search the forum.

I believe that's correct. I replaced my rears with JDM CX-5's. I kind of remember "borrowing" one from a CX-3 in the show room just to see & it did not fit.
