head rests

Hi on my 05 m3 the right rear head rest seems to be opened about 1/4-1/2" I have looked inside and do not see any broken plastic or anything that would indicate that something is wrong, can anyone tell me how to close it shut? My car is a convertible and with top down it just looks like it is broken. Also how do I take the headrest out of the seat? I know there is some kind of lever but i can't get the whole headrest with the 2 rods to come completely out. Any advise would helpful thanks, john

Thanks but that video does not show how he got headrest off to begin with. My issue is that there is an opening on 1 of headrests that I cannot close. Are you saying that I need to put top down and then test the roll over system which will bring the headrest up?

How about this? No, I don't think you have to test it, but it shows that you just push it back in place.
