How do you get the headrests out of a g3 bench seat? I've built my elky from the frame up, been a professional auto tech for over 20 years, and did major repairs on almost every area imaginable, but this seat thing has me scratching my head. I'm beginning to feel major frustration over this. Any help?? Please? Thanks.

I vaguely remember from my Chevelle. There is some kind of clip down inside restricting the headrest of pulling out. There is a circle drilled into the headrest post that the clip goes into. You have to release the clip.

You have to slip something down along the post to release the clip.It has to be
something like a thin piece of metal thin like 22 gauge sheet metal about an inch and a 1/2 wide i dont think it goes down that far.

Thanks! That makes me feel better. Sure glad to get the help, now my seat won't look so strange. Someone previously re-covered my seat and covered over the part where the headrest goes. There is just a lump under the vinyl. Last week I traded for a ripped up donor seat with nice black rests. Guess now I can try to take the covers off, slit them for the hardware, and try to get them all back together and hog ringed up. Thanks again for your help!
