I will take precautions to protect the leather.  Maybe slide a deflated football into the gap and inflate it........   What can possibly go wrong  :o  Probably open the sunroof first and place a net over the hole  :D.

PS:   I believe 'facetious' is the shortest word to contain all the vowels, in order, with no repetition.

OK so I got the headrests to move.  A fair amount of vertical force. plus a twist, applied while sitting in the back seat got them to move.  I then sprayed garage door lube up into the headrests, being careful not to allow it to drip onto the leather.  They now move as they should.  ;)

Issues with the busted ashtray resolved:  http://www.alfaclubvic.org.au/forum/index.php?topic=20088.0

And sticky console plastic: http://www.alfaclubvic.org.au/forum/index.php?topic=20087.0
I still need to clean up the window switch panels on the doors, and any other sticky trim.
