how to remove headrest to install sheepskin cover
I bought a sheepskin cover from Adsit, for the seat and back of front passenger seat.
I can't figure out how to take the headrest off to install the back portion of the cover.
The driver's seat already has a cover, with two small holes in the sheepskin and the chrome legs of the headrest go through them. So somehow I figured out (a few years ago) how to detach the headrest,make the two holes, install the cover and then reinsert the headrest .
Any help on this would be appreciated. I thought there might be some release button but can't find it, and the manual does not address this. As you know, the headrests are power adjustable from the side panel controls.

To replace headrest, hold that "button" in while sliding the HR back into position. It should positively engage into the mechanism. Adjust HR as needed.

But you asked how to remove the headrest. And in all the repair shops that I have been in, including the stealerships...er....dealerships....I have seen them do the same thing....lower the seat back...raise the headrest until the button pops out and pull the headrest straight up. You go to the seat cover shop and if they install the seat covers, they will do the same thing and not remove the seat back unless there is a problem.
Anyway, the link you posted is great!
