Worth doing if you can pick up a split-fold rear seat from a breakers yard. Hopefully it should just bolt in. I had some experience of this sort of thing last week and the front headrests came in handy. httpwww.fiatforum.companda-new2...-v-passat.html
I take it you are aware that there are two release buttons for the head rests One has a button you can see and push with a finger. But the one on the other rod sits flush with the its plastic surround This can be pushed in using a flat object (the end of the key is perfect) Push both and the headrests will come right out -)
Look at the back of the steering wheel you should see two screws inside holes one each side of centre. You will need a short 2 point Philips screwdriver. The horn push is on two springs and will pop out when you undo the screws. Before you do this check the two wires on the horn itself situated behind the front bumper on your drivers side. This is usually where problems with the horn start. Please let us know how you get on. Regards.

Easier to sit in the back (assuming its front head rests). Left tube of headrest has push button. Right hand side in the same place as button is a section of plastic which can be pushed in - sort of hidden button (the flat blade of the key is a good tool to push this in with. Note the hidden button is not the two little holes its on the opposite side to them). Push both the button and the key and (with
Hi Been there got the T shirt Step 1 To remove front seat from car 2 remove seat base 2 bolts under the frame 3 fold back the plastic tabs & fold the material up onto the seat 4 locate hog rings & open you should find 2 rods then unhook them cover off ready to wash mc For the backrest it more of a hasslelocate plastic clips at bottom of the backrest& Carefully force them open remove seat adjuster on frame then roll up cover until you can see headrest sleeves again locate the rods & hog rings & freeagain open them & pull out the headrest legs when this is done the covers can go into the wash no problem. The rear is a bit more auk ward but follow the same process I had to make new covers for my panda as the originals were badly worn Wash at low temp 30 35 % with the normal powders & softner
I have a skydome on my panda. I also got the split-folding and sliding rear seat and upholstered headrests (2 front and 2 back). I didnt think that it was possible to get the third seatbelt option on the skydome. I dont know where they would connect the third seatbelt - I thought that it usually connected to the ceiling of the car but the skydome would get in the way. Im imagining it to be a lap-belt
clarifying it has some sort of aircon as some models have none at all. The manual aircon is the standard feature on Dynamic models now. For some reason theyve given you the 5 seat optional extra. You could moan about if you dont want it as it does lose the split rear seat & nicer headrests but basically what youve got is just the standard new Dynamic plus 5 seat option which now comes up on the fiat
Same as mine (except mines on an 04 plate). I see they do front fogs on them now which suits it. Edit - Daft question but are the headrests in the front sold plastic or are they made out of the same fabric as the seats

From what I recall. At the rear of the front seat backs if you push inwards about 3 or 4 inches down in line with the headrest rods you should feel a clip. Pushing this in at the same time lifting the headrest it will come lose. Although you will probaly have to wiggle the head rest from side to side to free it of the seat backs . But they do come off with some force so be carefull.

On most cars the rear head rests are sit on top of the backrests but on the 500 they slide down
I didnt reckon a third seat would be of much use to me... Kids have to be in car seats these days and theres no way you could fit three in the back unless the kids were aged over 3.5 and then you might only just be able to fit three Bubble-Bums in the back. Nothing else would fit... I opted for the sliding rear seat option instead. This came with isofix fixings adjustable headrests and the front headrest upholstered. The sliding seat is so handy
I got some universal ones from TK Maxx. Theyre slightly baggy but better than the bright cloth seats I had (mine were light blue). the pack I got includes 2x front seat base covers 2x front seat back covers 1x rear seat base cover 1x rear seat back cover (with zips in case youve got split folding seats) and 5x head rest covers (I only needed 2). Word of warning though I had to carefully cut holes to
Ok the bolts are situated at the front of the rails (2 bolts) and the back of the rails (another 2 bolts). Use a 13mm socket to remove them and be careful not to smash the windows with the headrests when taking the seats out.
As far as I know all UK spec Unos always had front headrests the last UK spec fiat to recieve headrests was the 126 in 1990 as far as I can tell this was the year headrests became compulsory in the UK. Not sure if early pandas had them. As far as I can tell passenger side mirrors became compulsory in 1988. I always avoided Formulas because of the 903 lump although they have the bonus of being able to recieve the Turbo engine marginly easier than converting a FIRE.
