Allegro Bus Headboard Removal

I need to re-upholster the stained headboard in my 2010 bus. Is it glued on?

and Merry Christmas.
Are you trying to remove the headboard from the wall, or the fabric from the board.
Headboard is usually mounted to the wall, with screws hidden in the folds of the fabric. Took me about a half hour to find the ones holding mine on. Fabric is glued and stapled to the board.

On my 2008 Bus it was stapled and glued. Staples were in the rolled rope trim and I was able to use a long flexible piece of steel (a car window jimmy bar) to free the glue. Took a bit of careful work, but we had to re-center the headboard when I cut the king size bed board down to a queen.

So was the headboard fastened with glue? or was the upholstery glued to the headboard.
My first thought was to remove the headboard and send it to a shop and get it reworked. The first response told me the headboard had hidden screws, and the second one gave me the impression the upholstery was stapled and glued. Still a little confused.

The headboard, ( fabric and the plywood backing ) is held to the wall with hidden screws . The fabric is held to the plywood, with glue and staples.
