    Front headrest removal

    Hi guys,

    How are the front headrests removed? I have tried the push button on the top of the seat and the button on the side of the headrest itself and they aren't budging?

    Need to get them off to put some temporary seat covers on and need the headrest to pierce a hole through the cover.

    Am I missing something?

    Its a sportback btw

    Push the button on the stem and lift the headrest out. I find you have to 'bash' it up to overcome a detent of some kind.

    Thanks, I couldn't for the life of me get it off the other day. Will have a try this afternoon again.

    Yeap the black plastic parts on the top of the seat where the chrome rods are sitting in, have a sprung loaded push in clip, push this in, slide them of.
