Headrest adjustment

Hello Guys,

New to 528i, can't get my driver side headrest to retract. It's all the way forward but when I push on the side button it pushes back but won't stay in place. According to the user manual, you can move it forward by pulling or backwards by pressing the button and push the headrest towards the rear. However, I am able to move it backward but it doesn't stay in place I dont want to break it. Any help is appreciated.

Yes I know how to move entire headrest up and down with the seat adjuster side button.

I have the sport seats, so it is not the same. But.

When you push it back, does it stay back for that drive, but move forward the next time you use the car? if so, it may be that you should re-set your seat memory, and check idrive to make sure that your key works with your seat memory the way you want.
