Yes. I meant to say cycle spokes. I will work. You can try household eating fork, toothpick etc..
thanks everyone. will try out this.
Can anyone tell me how to remove my headrest completely from my Punto Old Model?
Any particular reason why you want to remove the head rests? Remember they are very essential part of the car, google whiplash and you will know.
@haroon hope you mean completely but temporarily..
Hey All thanks for the response , Yes I want to remove it to have my new seat covers on top of the ones already in the car
Just could not remove the Punto seat headrest I was frustrated.
Then searched on the internet on "How to remove seat headrest" and bounced in here.
The information I found here was useful, some what understood and tried the ways suggested here in the forum, it worked.
Thought of explaining it bit more elaborate,
Yes!! the seat headrest can be removed completely out from the main seat.
Here it is, and how it works,
Just need a firm rod/ stick in the thickness of a tooth pick.
A cycle spokes rode will also work fine.
I used "paper clip" the red clip you see in the picture is slightly larger one and bit firm, so I used the firm clip.
These pictures are taken with the headrest removed.
So, now you can see how this thing (poking with the pin and releasing the lock works)
The black plastic rectangle piece, is the one which holds the headrest rode into the main seat.
In the picture named 'normal' you can see a small shining silver metal tab inside the well (inside the circle), this is the lock that hold the rod of the headrest from coming out.
Now insert the needle in side the hole found on the side of the rectangular plastic.
You can do one rectangle at a time.
Just poke the needle and slightly dis-place the headrest by pushing upwards towards the ceiling.
Repeat the same for the other rectangle.
Now the entire headrest can be removed from the main seat.
In the picture 'lock pushed in' you can see the lock pushed in letting off the headrest rod.
