Hi everyone

I have a 1992 Sprite which has the original factory fitted seats which would look more at home in a Metro. Unfortunately the plastic bits that the headrest poles go into have broken on both sides.

Anyone have any of these for sale or know where I could get some, or should I just start trawling round scrapyards!?

Thanks very much!

I think your only chance is a replacement seat, as most people would not dismantle a seat to sell its parts. I can't even get one for an 04 Fiesta so for a 92 Mini its going to be difficult. Maybe an autojumble would be a better bet, but I wouldn't hold my breath!

Well I did manage to buy two of these plastic towers for in the seat housing the headrest some 15 years ago. Don't know where to obtain them now though. Any info is more than welcom as I have to restore my headrest sockets to.

Sommerford Mini spares sells them (bought them myself recently). They are still available (and are also used for Range Rovers):
