Default if it were only that easy...

well, it's my rear passenger headrest, i saw a thread on here for fixing it but they took the whole damn seat apart and the threat of airbag deployment was present... i don't know if i'm comfy with that... if there is an easier way and only 20mins approx. please forward the instructions if you could...?

Default I tried that also but I could not do it. It is easy to just take off the back of the seat

and then reinstall the cable back into the motor and all set.. If you also do a search on here you will see some of the fixes like using a hose clamp etc to lock the cable down so you can't go past the limits etc.. It is not that bad of a fix at all just remove the back of the seat and then the motor and pull the cable shaft back down and afix it back to the motor and put everything back
