This sounds dumb, but I only had a minute this morning to try it and I want to be sure I know how when I get home. Is there a secret to removing the headrests on SS seats? Usually there is a button or something to release them and I could not find that...

Thanks,

Doug

Thanks for the call and pics Mark, should be a breeze once I find something to fit in there.

Just FYI if you just wriggle the %$% out of it, it WILL come off but WONT catch again upon re-installation
Ya, been there done that, didnt bother asking just yanked it out
It really doesnt matter because gravity keeps it in place but it would be technically BROKEN

I almost did that this morning since I was in a huge hurry, but I knew someone would know how to really do it...LOL
