FIAT PUNTO head rests

Does anyone know how to remove fiat punto head rests so that seat covers can be put on? I can't find anything in the handbook. I bought seat covers and can't use them. The headrests in my last car were easy to remove - a small lever pressed in and they could be taken off.

You may have found a way to do this...but...
Yes there is a way of taking them off though it`s not an easy job.
First wind the backrest of the seat forwards and push the whole seat forwards on the rails. At the bottom of the fabric you`ll see a plastic strip which with a of force (flat bladed screwdriver) will first slide from side to side but it should come apart. Now lying on the back seat wriggle your arm up the back of the seat and find the stalks that have the headrest on them. There is a metal clip that you have prise apart/away from the stalk and with the other hand push the headrest off. Fit the seat covers and it`s really a reverse to get them back on. I found a friend to help to put them back on as it`s not easy opening the clip and pushing down on the headrest at the same time. Remember to connect the plastic strip back together before you tie-up underneath. Hope this helps.

Thanks for that - will have a look at it. Thinking about selling it so if it is too much hassle, I won't bother!
