My Drivers side headrest popped for no apparent reason. I tried to rest using the information on this forum...No luck.
I noticed many broken plastic parts on the inside. I have since gutted the headrest so that the two halves go back together.
I used velcro to keep them together. I have moved the headrest to the passenger side until I can find a replacement.

A guy “tapped” me in the back at a traffic light and both headrests popped. When I removed them to inspect, I too found a bunch of broken plastic inside, including the tabs that apparently hold them together.
Guessing there was no way to put them back together, I called the dealership and was quoted $1800.00 to replace both.
After I came to, I gutted each and bought a bottle of Gorilla Glue.
Good as new, right? Wrong! I was looking at a G70 last week and disclosed the headrest issue. They immediately knocked $3000.00 off the trade which was unacceptable. So, needless to say, I’m still driving a otherwise pristine ‘13 Rspec 5.0.
