The headrests can be removed by inserting a thin flexible strip down between
the front of the head rest shaft and the slot it is in. This will release
the spring clip that prevents the head rest from pulling completely out of
the seat. It takes a little fidgeting the first time you do one but after
that takes only a few seconds. Raise the head rest and poke the tool down
as far as it will go. Then push both the head rest and the tool back down
into the seat. While holding the tool down lift the head rest out.
There is no nead to destroy the seat to do the job.
The tool is similar to a slim jim used to unlock car doors. I have used a
hacksaw blade with the teeth ground off it with equal success.

Many headrests, and not just GM, don't come out. You will have to remove
back, the fabric and padding, and cut the stops off with a sawzall.
