    Anyone ever pulled the headrest out of a turbo?

    My SIL is supposed to pick my son up from his art class (my inlaws who usually take him are away, and my daughter has music that ends at the same time on the other end of the city, ugh). She just called to tell me that she accidentally pulled the headrest out of the backrest out of the Turbo I'd loaned her. I haven't a clue how to put it back in! Luckily I can meet her ahead of time, but I'm hoping I can fix it! Suggestions or tricks?

    ETA, phew, I just remembered I have 2 boosters in my car now that I have the Monterey on loan. I can just give her one of those, and Greg can ride in the other to class.

    Oh, it is easy. Squeeze handle, insert head into back. I have done it before also.

    Thanks Judy, it was pretty simple. I haven't a clue what she was doing that she couldn't get it back together, but it's fixed now. She said she will carry it by the side now.

    She probably just accidentally pushed the button and gravity did the rest.

    oh, yeah... it's easy because there is no stopper of any kind... just squeeze the red handle like you would to lower it and insert.

    Yeah, every time we move ours from my truck to DH's the headrest falls off!

    I've had the bottom fall off onto my toes (ouch!), but I guess I've never managed to pull the top out. All fixed now, I think she just didn't think to squeeze the handle when she tried putting it back together.
