I ended up using the following method to remove headrest - after removing seat from vehicle and placing on a sawhorse or other such device to isolate the headrest, insert hand from the bottom of the back of seat until you can feel the tube in which the headrest glides. Find a long narrow steel piece ( 1/8"x3/4"x3Ft) and slide it into the tube and using a hammer, tap out the headrest. You be the judge of the force applied with the hammer. One of my headrest had a thin metal springee type thing in the bottom of the headrest tube with a detent buttom, but pushing it in no way eased the removal. The metal rod  came off an old garage door locking mechanism. Never throw STUFF away!
