The newer Chevrolet Impalas have a similar setup. However, instead of a flat screwdriver, use an awl or a 2″ finishing nail with the sharp end filed down, or cut off. Instead of pushing with the screwdriver, hold the nail (at a 90 degree angle) with locking pliers and insert the nail in the small hole,which is clearly visible. Otherwise, the engineering of the headrest lock is essentially the same for both the Jetta and the Impala. I reversed the headrest direction and now they slide in and out with a simple pulling action since they no longer “lock” in position.
