    Wires down zafira seats

    Hi wondered if anyone can help.

    I have purchase some dvd headrests for my zafira. The wires go down headrest tube, then into seat. This is where the problem lies. How do i get the wires down the seat through the headrest hole it seems to be blocked up.

    Has anyone else fitted them this way.

    Thanks for your help in advance

    First try taking one of the seat inserts out for the headrest out and see if it's hallow. You'll probably just find that something further down in the seat is stopping it from going down so with the bottom of the seat cover released try and get your hand up the back of the seat

    Sorry ment headrest inserts. I believe there's 2 tabs in the centre of them that need releasing.

    The seat cover will unclip somehow, I think the vauxhall ones have a "U" shape on one side of the cover and the other side of it clips into it

    you could try poking a straightend out coathanger or similar down between the cushion and the leather to aid routing the cable .might even go up the small gap at the bottom.
