Can anyone advise me how you remove the front seat head restraints on standard GL seats.

Are they any different to others? Is there a little part of the ring where the uprights meet the seat that push inwards to release it

The GL seats are different, don't have a clip or anything like that - they slide up and down by pushing/pulling them in the desired direction but I can only guess that if you unscrew the headrest at the base it may come out?
