How to remove headrest on 2006 sebring

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.

How do you take out the metal sleeves around the sparkplugs i have the valve cover off and need to get one out

DON"T yank the wire. A little gentle twisting should free it. If its a toughie the auto store will have a pair of pliers made just for that purpose. They have a semicircle jaw that will allow you to pull the boot from the bottom w/o damaging the plug wire. Well worth the $7-$8 if you do this kind of thing on a regular basis.

The boots on the plugs don't want to come off. Is it a straight pull off or is there a trick to it? I'm trying to not break things as I go.

I'm not sure, but I believe they just pull straight off. Try wiggling back and forth as your pull it off. But, you do need to pull it hard to get it to come off, it will not just slide off.

1998 Honda Civic DX. Melted Boots in Spark Plug Sleeve

I would use a pair of long nose pliers to grab a hold of them and pull them off, there are metal connectors inside the boots which snap onto the top of the spark plug.

Changing spark plugs

it is possible to remove sleeves but if they are stuck on plug you WILL bend them up pretty long as you can get em back on snug enough to protect plug wire boot,who cares if they're a lil beat up.good luck

Spark Plugs

You must mean the wire.There is a metal heat shield around the wire at the motor and it is connected to the wire.Just put a pair of needle nose pliers on the metal sleeve and twist it and pull it off
