headrest problem with 2013 compass

Can't get my headrest to release. Is there a trick or tool I need? Or do they just not come off?

from the Owner Manual:

Head Restraints
Head restraints are designed to reduce the risk of injury
by restricting head movement in the event of a rear
impact. Head restraints should be adjusted so that the top
of the head restraint is located above the top of your ear.

Active Head Restraints — Front Seats
Active Head Restraints are passive, deployable components,
and vehicles with this equipment cannot be readily
identified by any markings, only through visual inspection
of the head restraint. The head restraint will be split
in two halves, with the front half being soft foam and
trim, the back half being decorative plastic.
When AHRs deploy during a rear impact, the front half
of the head restraint extends forward to minimize the gap
between the back of the occupant’s head and the AHR.
This system is designed to help prevent or reduce the
extent of injuries to the driver and front passenger in
certain types of rear impacts. Refer to “Occupant Restraints”
in “Things To Know Before Starting Your Vehicle”
for further information.

To raise the head restraint, pull upward on the head
restraint. To lower the head restraint, press the push
button, located at the base of the head restraint, and push
downward on the head restraint.

For comfort the Active Head Restraints can be tilted
forward and backward. To tilt the head restraint closer to
the back of your head, pull forward on the bottom of the
head restraint. Push rearward on the bottom of the head
restraint to move the head restraint away from your
head.

NOTE:
• The head restraints should only be removed by qualified
technicians, for service purposes only. If either of
the head restraints require removal, see your authorized
dealer.

There's a tiny pin hole on the side of the one black cover without the push button . Push a paper clip in to release it while pushing button on opposite side and pulling up on headrest. Then there will be one wire you have to disconnect.
