RE: Removing leather seat covers from 1987 5000CSTQ front seats...
I use a 14mm deep socket, a 3in extension and a hammer. Easier on the 4k
seats than the 5k/1c stuff. The big cars have plastic sockets that are bent
rather than straight. And there are two places in the seat back where the
plastic sockets will bind. Patience and a little convincing with the BFH
will work though.

Subject: Removing leather seat covers from 1987 5000CSTQ front seats...
I'm trying to get the cover off the passenger seat back on my '87
5KCSTQ. I've got the seat out of the car, and in the living room. The
back is removed from the base, and I've removed the trim, bent back
the retaining hooks, removed the clips, removed the u shaped clips
that hold the headrest on, and removed the headrest.
The problem: The plastic sockets that the headrests go into won't
come out. It looks like I should be able to squeeze the end of them
together, and push them out, however, they won't go. Any tips or
tricks to doing this? I know I could cut the retaining tabs off, and
they'd probably slide right out, but I'd rather not ruin them and
have to buy new ones.
