Headliner removal question

For those of you who've BTDT, did you follow the book and remove the  
rear seat back, rear deck, and C-pillar trim? It looks to me like I  
should be able pull/cut it loose from the front to the back and then  
move it forward about half an inch to clear the c channel above the  
rear window and the C-pillar trim. I can't see how to do it by the  
book because the rear seat back is held in by the headrest post  
sockets. The Bentley seems to be lying to me again because it insists  
that the lower portion of the headrest sockets protrude into the  
trunk under the rear deck. I contend that they do not. It looks to me  
like they are on the front side of the rear seat bulkhead behind the  
seat back. My experience is that those headrest sockets are a one  
time install item. Even with access to the lower portion as installed  
in the front seat backs I had no success in removing them.
