Pressing the head restraint cushion back
requires high force. If you encounter
difficulties when pushing the head restraint
back, please have the procedure
performed at an authorized Mercedes-Benz
Center.1- Push the head restraint cushion at the
bottom, back as far as possible.2- Push the head restraint cushion down into
the guide.3- Fold the head restraint cushion by the top,
back firmly until it engages.4- Repeat this procedure on the NECK-PRO
active front head restraint for the second
front seat.

The special tool is basically a long thin screwdriver. The one in the toolkit looks "L" shaped and is about 6 inches long. It is placed through a guide in the top rear portion of the headrest. (in between the sections that separated from the deployment of the head rest.) Sliding it all the way through the guide and pressing firmly you should hear a click and this will help release the headrest and allow you to press it back into position. If you definitely don't have the toll it should be available from the dealer and may be cheaper than them replacing/resetting it. Let me know if I can be any further assistance.
