Default 2000 A8 My headrest wont stay up.

I don't have the button like my A6 I have the electronic button on the dash that is supposed to bring them all down at the same time. I Imagine that is the problem that there are some sort of locking mechinism that has retracted and not working. Anyone repair this problem yet.

I'm gonna need a bigger bag of cable ties

For anyone with this problem it is obviously the motors in side the seat. I hear them running but they are not grabbing the posts to send it up. So I got two small white o-rings pulled out the headrest put them on and put it back in. It works and doesn't look stupid either. DONE and for less than 1 dollar.
