Both Headrests activated yesterday when I couldn’t avoid a monster pothole. Looking for accurate steps to reset. Checked out videos on YouTube but were all for different model types. Anyone in the know?

Here’s the solution. I brought the car to my mechanic and showed him what I had as far as potential remedies. He told me to watch him-

He put his ODB II into the port and pulled up two codes. 1st, Steering Wheel. 2nd Headrest Deployment. He cleared out both codes; went to the driver’s seat and squeezed the back and front pieces back together. He repeated the same step on the passenger side.

There was no plastic tab to be reset. The clearing of the codes reset the innards of both headrests and allowed them to be re-closed. $50 charge. In and out in less than 45 Minutes.
