Removing rear headrest

Tried to remove rear headrest but couldn't figure out what the manual meant when they said and showed that an aux tool was used in the collar with the hole.

Anyone tried this?

Haven't tried it for myself but have you tried using the tool mentioned? If not, it's quite possible that very same tool is in a tool kit in the 'trunk'

Try this for size - should be similar if not the same ...

btw, the simple tool 3371 is a set of guages - the one needed here is 2 mm thick - perhaps you can round up anything that is exactly 2 mm thick and strong/stiff enough for the task ...

ahh, here you go - a few posts down the thread - http://www.audiworld.com/forums/q5-s.../#post24495328

Ah yes, feeler gauges. Like what we used to use to set point gap and still the check spark plug gap with (although I prefer the wire type for plugs).

Thanks, All! Not knowing what the tool looked like and the fact that the collar had a small hole in it I was thinking the tool might be something that was pushed into the hole. Seems as if the manual could have shown this a bit more clearly.

That's something I have noticed to be commonplace with OEM manuals, they don't give clear, specific and direct guides, not as well as say a haynes manual.

Out of curiosity... why are you removing the headrest? I think I might need to remove mine as well, to fit some stuff in the truck while traveling.

I was trying to fold down flat the rear seat to make room for several snowboards, wouldn't all fit thru the center pass thru and the headrest hit the back of the front seat.
