Question Front seat head rest removal

So, I bought a set of seat covers yesterday and I'm trying to install them this morning. Surprise, surprise!! The head rests won't come out. I tried pushing the little button and pulling up hard, No good. I look for a little clip or some other retaining device. Nothing.

I did a Google search and a site search and all I found were references to the rear seat. How do I get the front head rests out?

This is what the book shows for seats with the seat belt in the seat back. I assume it'd be the same if you have a different type seat though.

<table border="0" cellpadding="1" cellspacing="10"><tbody><tr><td valign="top">1</td> <td valign="top">Pull the head restraint out to end of travel. Press release button, pull head restraint rod past its stop position.</td> </tr> <tr><td valign="top">2</td> <td valign="top">Using a flat-bladed screwdriver, press the release tab on the second head restraint rod guide and pull head restraint free of seat back.</td></tr></tbody></table>

Dave, you are the man! I didn't even need the screwdriver. I was able to push the small button in with my finger. Thanks again.
