Wanted: BX 16 TGS headrest (rear)

Post by Routemaster »

Does anyone have a rear headrest (or ideally two) looking for a new home?

Any leads gratefully appreciated.

If you could take a picture of the fabric that would help

You can cut down front ones to fit.

Front headrests will also fit the rear. You just need to trim 55mm off the bottom end of the steel column and its plastic surround, and refit the plastic end closer. Nice easy job.

Didn't realise the fronts can be made to fit too, thank you.
I only have the attached photo to hand but it's a grey cloth interior.
I'm open to any colour as that's secondary to the safety of passengers in the rear seat.

Ah yes this is "grey tweed" and fairly common so you should be able to find some hopefully

Found mine on Ebay - a listing by someone in Kent.
Try googling something like 'Citroen BX headrest grey', hitting Images, and see what the link is under each one.
Ads with pictures usually end up showing under an Images search.

Try also garage80.nl. Lots of BX parts there.

Not sure they're an exact match for the grey tweed. The covers on them look a tad thin and baggy! :?
SFAIR, headrests are normally finished in exactly the same material as the seats.

Garage80 looks a good tip, thank you.
I'm wondering if the pair shown have covers as the baggy appearance doesn't look very 'OEM'.

Wondered about that too - a BX antimacassar, maybe?
Ask them what's underneath...
