Seatbelt fitting

Post by urzzz » Wed 15 Aug, 2018 17:30

So as part of a wider interior refresh, I have bitten the bullet and gone for some Gelb seatbelts to replace my current black ones.
My question is: how difficult is it to swap them?
It looks simple enough on the diagram on Jet's Ziki, a 45+5Nm bolt on the seat and a 45+5 Nm bolt behind the bulkhead - but how do I access the upper fixing point?
Any guidance gratefully received.
Thank you

Good idea, How are the seatbelt stalks, the red button gets pretty beaten up.

It’s been a while since I did this, but remove seat, unbolt belt, remove blanking panel, side leather trims and it should be easy from there.
