There is a push pi on the other side. I used a knife to push it in. They slide right out!

Just keep pulling up after all the notches are done. This is how I did it when trying to fit our old rear facing car seat...BUT, your insurance will void your coverage if you are rear ended etc..and they find out you had no head rests...there was another thread about this from December 11', i believe. many good insurance debates are sure to follow if you plan on driving with it that way,

BTW, you have to recline the seat to get em out.

I wonder if you could install the new style adjustable ones that are supposedly being offered on the new models. That might solve the headrest issue where some people's heads are forced forward into an uncomfortable position. Or maybe just turn them around as I read somewhere else... Not sure where. Going to have to try it out to see if anything helps. The current setup is quite uncomfortable for my wife in the passenger seat.

They must be some short people. I find the headrests perfect, making it much more enjoyable for longer trips.

Removing Rear Headrest

On my 2010 ... Adjustment button (for the passenger's head rest) is on the left hand side post but on the right hand side post, facing the window is a little flush mount button. Push this button in using a pen tip while the head rest is extended as far as it can go. Doing this from the rear seat is always better! Might need to wiggle it from side to side so the adjustment button does not re-engage and with the seat reclined a bit so that when you pull it out you don't get stopped by hitting up agains the roof. Hope this helps!
