Just removed them on a 2005 Sebring sedan. Easier with two people but one can manage just fine. The trick is a tiny hole in the plastic "sleeves" that the metal posts on the headrest slide into. You'll need a small poking device-Allen wrench, drill bit, tiny screw driver, whatever. The hole is on the right side of the right side sleeve on each headrest (as you're sitting in the back seat facing forward) and is perpendicular to the direction the metal rods go into the sleeves. Insert your small poker and depress the plastic button on the other plastic sleeve simultaneously while your helper pulls up on the headrest.
90% of head rests just pull out. the others will have a button where the headrest goes into the seat. If yours doesn't have the button, then push the headrest down and **** it up with some force and it will come out. Just be carefull you don't hit yourself in the face with it. Been there done that
There is a Pin hole on one side of the headrest in the plastic base. You have someone put a small Allen wrench in the hole till it presses against the metal spring and also on the release on the other side, then pull the headrest out. You will have to press on the spring to put the head rest back in also.
Pull the seat fabric down in front to expose the plastic piece that the headrest bar inserts through. You will see a small wire clip inserted through plastic. Remove it by prying with small flat head screwdriver. Repeat on other side. Headrest will then slide out.
Lift the headrest to it highest postion. Insert a thin stick parallel to the head rest bar (the side facing the rear of the vechicle) I used a thin paint stirring stick, a Slim Jim is ideal.
Once the stick is inserted (10" give or take) push the head rest down holding the stick steady, then pull the headrest back up and it will come off the seat.
Hope this helps.
With the headrest about half way up insert a flat bar between the headrest bar and the opening where it goes in the seat. (back side of head rest) and pull up. It should come right out. I used a paint stir stick when I changed my seat belt loops.
Hope this helps.
The headrest is hold by the two bars of the middle. The bars are engaged in two plastic guides fitted in the seat frame. The bars are locked by two little springs located in theses guides. They are very difficult to remove under the seat foam. The solution I used is a hammer (quite heavy) with a T bar from a sockets set . The diameter was exactly the same as the inner diameter of the plastic guide . Then I inserted this bar at the bottom end of the plastic guides and I hit the bottom of the mettalic bars with these tools and I managed. After the inspection, the springs were bended and I had to give the former shape they had before the removal.
Good luck ( sorry for my poor english but I'm french!)

The headrest has on obvious button to adjust the height and another button kinda hidden to remove the headrest. The black plastic ring at the base where the metal poles insert into the seat is where the two buttons. You probably noticed the obvious on that sticks out of the side of one of the rings. The other plastic ring contains a similar button that is not noticeable due to it being flush with the side of the plastic ring. Adjust the headrest to its highest position, then locate the "hidden" button on the other plastic ring and depress it while lifting on the headrest and it should come out.
