I think that the malibu had a flat single post if I remember correctly. You need a thin peice of sheet metal as wide as the post. Bend it in an "L" the long leg of the L should be as long as the headrest post in the up position. Put the L into the gap between the headrest post and the plastic sleeve. I think the catch was on the front of the malibu so put it on the front side with the Short leg facing you. Push the headrest down. Now keep the L down on the top of the seat and pull the headrest out. If it doesnt work on the front try the back as the catch may be on the other side.
