Headrest looks like ours from a Slovenian-built 1990 GTL.

Note that the distance between the 'prongs' or 'legs' (and their diameter) might be different to the 'soft' type.

Let's start the work..

Water pump out.. Inside looks good but looking for the exterior it has some leak.

The water lines of the head, don't have any corrosion..

The belt tensor needs some clean and new color..

Because of the bypass on the water pump for the The chauffage radiator, I take it off for test.

you need to use special adhesive. Same kind you use for rear view mirror.
