It's at the upholsterer's and she can't figure out how to remove the plastic bushings on top of the seat back through which the headrest rods go. (One of the bushings is spring loaded an rotates to disengage he head rest adjustment pawl so the head rest an be removed.)

What makes this difficult is that only the Turbo had the adjustable head rest meaning not many people would have done this. But this might be a method Suzuki used in other cars. Hence the posting here rather than Interior.

Turns out a friend of mine who is a collector of supremely weird cars (Goliath for example) knew specifically how to do it: You have to either peel back the cover (or reach up underneath it) and squeeze the plastic latch on the inserts - the they slide right out.

Remember when installing to put the twist-latch one for headrest removal on the proper side.

I'm surprised no one knew how to do this here.
