Cybex Xfix require vehicle headrest?

Does Cybex X-Fix require a vehicle headrest? Their website has no phone #? Not liking that.

Have to leave in an hour.

I was going to use my Vivo for his playdate, but since it requires the vehicle headrest, seems if the headrest juts forward at all it wouldn't work. Catch 22. I might bring both to see what works in their specific vehicle.

All this and they could bike with the busy road and crossing all the drives, figure driving is best.

OK, found it in the owner's manual that I can remove headrest. Wasn't sure it would be so easily spelled out, but it was.

BUT the customer service # listed routes me around and goes to voicemail...very disappointed in that.

I've had no probs with their customer service #. Got a person right away and they promptly sent out a new base (I had issues with the latch).
