How to adjust the front headrest

I was trying to adjust my passenger side headrest and couldn't figure out how to raise or lower it. This is on a 535i Mpsort. Same with the drivers side. Has anyone able to adjust their front headrests. Thanks.

You pull up or push down on the power seat lever that controls the recline part of the seat. I had an E60 loaner once and couldn't for the life of me figure it out. I then checked an online manual and got it. My new 535i has the same switch.

Oh thanks, you guys are awesome, i saved the trouble of finding it in the manual. I knew there had to be a switch for it as i noticed it wouldn't move manually. I will give it a try and report it. Thanks again.

Yeah, instead of pushing forward or back on the switch to change the seatback angle, you just lift or push down. Kind of clever how they integrated the two opposing functions.
