Simple. Need two people and also two vise grips, two smaill nails about 3 inches long. Put one nail in each vise grip and lock the vise grip onto the nail. Locate the plastic ring which can be found sitting on top of the seat and has a hole in it that one of the chrome braces fits in. Two chrome braces and two plastic rings. On the side of each of the rings is a hole. Take one vise grip and put the nail into the hole and you will feel it punch something in and when you release the push, the nail will return back out a very short distance. By pushing the nail in, you have released that brace. Now for the removal. You will need to punch into both plastic rings at the same time and then all you do is have the other party lift the head rest straight up and out. Piece of cake and there is absolutely no damage. To reinstall, simply place the two braces into the holes and push down and it will again be locked in. This was done on my 2007 Cadillac SRX.

Tilt the seat then you will see two plastic surrounds where the headrest supports slide into, one will have a tab, with the seat tilted so the headrest can clear the roof push the tab at the same time as you tug the headrest out and the headrest will slide out.
