Headrest removal?

I want to temporarily remove the front passenger seat headrest from my 2010 Challenger SRT8 for cleaning. There is a button at the base of the headrest's vertical rod (the one closest to the center of the car). Pushing that in allows the headrest to be lifted up or down, but does not allow its removal. How can I remove the headrest? Thank you!

I took mine off last summer to remove the seat belt loops and if I remember correctly it is that button you are talking about. Should just push it and lift on the headrest.

There's another smaller button opposite of the push button that raises and lowers the headrest. Raise it up all the way, push both buttons in and it will lift out.

Headrest Removal

Hello, Speardog; thanks for getting back to me. I also undid the seat belt from the plastic loop, but no matter how hard I pull up on the headrest (while pushing in the button), I couldn't actually remove the headrest. Did you experience any difficulties and, if so, how did you get the headrest all the way off? Thanks.

Mike; u da man! Your tip solved my puzzle. The 2nd button you mention is located at the base of the 2nd headrest post (the one toward the outside of the car). I appreciate your help.
