Default well she finally found something wrong with CX5

she came in yesterday and said "we got to take it to the shop". i said why?

she says while i am driving the headrest works its way up on its own,,all the way.

so i go check it out,, and sure enough ,, push it down all the way and as you are driving
and you rest your head on it,,, it starts slowly going up ! pretty soon its all the way up.

i guess the catch or spring isn't putting enough resistance on the bars..
anyone else have this happen?

I have to say, that doesn't make a whole lotta' sense as there's nothing in the headrest mechanism that would force it up even if the retention button at the top of the seatback were weak. I would think the headrest would just sit there, as it's designed to be inert unless pulled up or pushed down. As any rate, it sounds like the retention mechanism is weak/faulty and needs replacement.
PS: Have you tried pulling/pushing it up/down without using the retention button (and comparing it to how the one on the passenger seat works)?

Wonder if someone put something springy down the slot for the headrest.

its weird,,but as you drive it for a while of course your heard rubs against the headrest. and in short time the headrest is up
it has enough tension to hold it up just not enough to hold it down.
