seatback removal

[Here’s the procedure that I came up with (although it’s a simple 2 minute job my description may not be obvious until you’re actually looking at the raw parts): 1) set the headrest height such that the rod-ball aligns with the broken track socket, 2) reassemble the ball end of the rod between the main track channel and the broken-off top (which you’ve retrieved), 3) tighten a ˝” (or largest you can fit) plastic cable tie around the 3 pieces, then trim, 4) test the up and down operation while observing the tightness of the joint (maximum stress is when the head rest is being pulled fully down, and 5) replace the seat-back.

This is an excellent description of how to fix the headrest. Followed the details to a tee. Thanks a whole lot!
