I'm trying to remove the headrest from the front passenger and driver seat so that I can remove the seatbelt guide. I've read that you can push a paperclip into a hole in the plastic holder at the bottom of the headrest but I still can't get it to remove. Please help. Thanks!

Make sure you replace it after removal. It is part of the safety system and prevents you getting a broken neck in a crash.
Depress the large button on the head restraint guide and raise the head restraint to the full up position. Depress the smaller button on the opposite head restraint guide and pull upward to remove from the seat.Jan 16, 2022
First off, are you able to move the seat forward, backward, or upward to free up the tension on the seat belt lock so you can again pull out slack? If not, are you able to raise or remove the headrest to create slack in the seatbelt and release the lock? Without a photo of the situation it's difficult to understand how you managed to get a seatbelt stuck around a headrest....
Remove the headrests (if equipped). Grip the lower seat at the front part of the seat and pull upwards to clear the clips(1), and the remove the lower seat. Fold down the armrest and remove the bolts behind the armrest. The upper seat(backrest) is then pushed up, pulled forward and then moved either left or right out of the vehicle from behind the seatbelts.
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.
