Dunno the trick for this, but I've got a pretty decent 95-up split bench that has a bad headrest, I mean crushed, that I need to pull out and swap one in from another beat-up seat.

They pull up but there's a catch at the end of the rods, and I'm wondering how to get the thing out without messing up the seat.

Thanks,
Richard

Okay, got it, and a closer look in the daylight might have showed me the way!

Someone on FSC pointed out to me that the trick access hole is in the front of the base for each rod. I mistakenly assumed at my quick glance that any hole would be in the back, and didn't see one... anyway, a simple push with a straight pick and a little wiggling, do this to one side then the other, and it comes right out. Pics, as usual.

Headrest is already removed for the pic, but I took them so you could see the mechanism work.

My 95 Hoe has buttons to remove them. Never saw that design. Must in the pickups. Of which you seem to have quite a collection going.

Hey Philip, do you think you could snap a pic of the seat? I know there's a few different seat styles used over the years, and it seems like there was more than one supplier. All of the 95-up style buckets and 60/40's (both "fold down console/armrest" and "fold down large armrest/no console" style) I've got here have the same little release mechanism on the headrest, including a 60/40 console style from a '98 Tahoe.

The collection is going nuts...I figure I can get another dozen or so in here before I have to rent the lot next door.
