How do I remove headrest?



My neighbor has a 1995 Ford Taurus. He asked me to help him put on a pair
of slip on seat covers. The headrest must be removed before the seat cover
will fit over the seat. We spent over 20 minutes trying to remove the
headrest but failed. The owner of the Taurus does NOT have a service
manual.
Please tell me how to remove the headrest.
Thanks in advance,
Jason

It takes a slim-jim, like to open doors.

Re: How do I remove headrest?

I removed a set a few months ago. You have to raise the rests as far as
possible and reach down with a tool along the side of the post with a
tool and push the release back. I probably used a screwdriver. In the
right light and with luck you can sometimes peek down there sort of see
what's going on. You don't need to force it much. Once the lever is
pushed back they pull right out.

Try holding down the adjustment button. If not that, then raise the head
restraint to the highest position and insert a small bit or Allen wrench
into the hole in the button.

I just found out i'm wrong.. went out to look at my 95 GL and it has two
shafts, round and thin. Slim Jim is obviously no good but cant find adj
button, either.
