3 Door 4.1 - Repalcing The Seatbelt Buckle

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Just got a replacement seatbelt buckle (thanks Parts King) for my 3 door 4.1 and i'm not sure the best way to go about replacing it.

The Haynes manual is light on any detail.

It looks to me that i'd either have to remove all the plastic center console to get enough access to remove all the plastic at the side of the seat to get access to the buckle bolt OR maybe it would be easier to take the seats out completely?

Only other thing that looks a possibility is moving the seat as far back as possible and unscrewing the now visible rear trim screw and then it might be possible to ease the plastic surround forward enough to get a spanner in and undo the buckle.

Waddaya reckon? Anyone else done this before?

Stu.

I personally would whip the seat out for that. Take the back bolts out after sliding the seat forward then slide it back and do the fronts. For goodness sake if it has seatbelt pretensioners disconnect the Battery for 5 mins first.
