Rear headrest removal?

How in the hell do these things come off? I've reviewed the information http://www.wk2jeeps.com/interior/201...moval_001E.pdf - but I don't see a slot that releases it. There is a brass-colored wire that goes around the plastic trim piece, I don't want to try to take it all the way off though...

I need to take them off so the car seats will fit. Since the headrests point forward, they keep the car seat from being able to rest against the back.

This is what the clip looks like:


I'm guessing this is a different design and that snap ring has to be pulled off...

Re: Rear headrest removal?

Patience is a virtue they say...

In any case, I suppose this can go to the DIY/HowTo now:


There are one of the ring clips on each rear headrest, grab a small pick and pull it around the plastic cover and it slides off.

Guess I never noticed it either, since I tend to tilt my rear seats back a little past the default 'straight up' to be more comfortable for passengers.

But the clip removal info is good info to have.
