I have a car seat in the back seat and was wondering if there is a way to remove the headrest? Mine is a 2009 if that matters.

Great! How? I've pushed the release button and as far as I can tell it only releases for going down. Have you actually removed yours? Anyone? It has to come out, I just need to know how so I don't break the dang thing.
Thanks for anyone's help.

Drive through the service bay with your baby strapped into his/her child seat in the back seat, preferably screaming, :crying2: and they should have it out in about 2 seconds. Just kidding about the screaming kid, but it can be an effective tool. :D Your service advisor should be able to help.

Leija 01, you are the man! I used a Snap-On "pick" tool end that just pushed in on the hole located on the inboard side and it came right up!
I was going to attempt the screaming kid as an alternative if I wasn't successful on removing it myself, but fortunately I did not have to.
