I need help with a petty annoyance. I'd like to remove the headrest from one of the rear seats on my 2009 hatchback. No one ever sits in that seat and the headrest partially blocks rear view when the seat isn't folded down.
I consulted the online factory manual. It says:
Yeah, right! Pressing the button will allow you to raise and lower the headrest, but not remove it. I scrutinized it, yanked on it, swore at it, etc.. It won't come off.Head Restraint
1. Press the head restraint adjust button and remove the head restraint from the seatback.
On the Jap cars I have, you simply press the button and remove the headrest. But not with this Aveo. Chevy seems to have an obsession with making headrests non-removable. I had the same problem with my '88 Chevy Caprice. On that car it required a special tool to do it and it was a PITA.
