Unhappy Front Seat Cover - Fiat Panda 4x4 April 2015

I'm trying to find front seat covers for my Fiat Panda 4x4 - April 2015.

I'm getting confused by conflicting information on different websites. Some saying the headset has to be removed, and that can only be done by a garage.

Just when I think I've found some, the info the site gives is conflicting.

I just need cheap sport type covers, not zip fitted.

Can anyone help?

I won't be able to recommend a specific model since I myself haven't found one that I like, and I'm writing in from a different country so availability will differ greatly, but I should mention the active whiplash protection in the front headrests means the only way to get them out is to dismantle the seat back and disarm the whiplash mechanism which is more hassle than it's worth considering there are plenty of seat covers that don't require the headrest to be removed for installation.
Thanks gar074 thanked for this post

That explains why I couldn't get the front head restraints off when I was trying to fit some sheets of plywood into my wee yellow beastie. Just as well I didn't tug on them any harder!

I've been idly looking around for some seat covers for my Cross, as the standard-fit seats are so dreary. Tempted by some yellow and black ones, but they look like they only fit where they touch.
