'73 280 se headrest question

I am a newbie to w108 ownership and have what maybe the silliest question ever.

How do you remove the headrests on the front seats. I want to put on some seat covers and I feel like a moron, but I can't get the headrest off and I certainly do not want to force them.

Thank you for your help!

There should be a button on the left that you can feel through the back of the seat.
Push it in and it will relase the neadrest shaft. You have to hold it down.

Amazing what 40 years of driving these cars will teach you. BTW it's in your owner's manual too. Enjoy your new seat covers!
