head rest

Have a 1990 Mercury Sable. Am trying to install front seat covers and can't figure out how to remove the head rests from the seat backs. don't see any release buttons nor do i feel any thru the leatherette upholstry. Does anyone know where the secret release is?

Look in your owner's guide for how to adjust them.

Once you get them up enough, you'll see any releases, if any.

Some just pull out with some force and have no release.

head rest

Try pulling the head rest all the way up, then unscrew the two collars at the base of the shafts going into the seat back. Once loosened all the way pull up.
