Removing rear seat bench to adjust seatbelt buckle.

Recommended Posts

I noticed the middle seatbelt buckle was not in the correct position, nearly 2 months after the fuel suction recall. So I decided to fix the problem myself. 

To remove the bench cushion, lift the front part by pulling up with a bit of force on the left and right sides. Then pull the bench forward. 20190412_132529.thumb.jpg.f7d27305765a6fea46e88ecc8b33c071.jpg

Looking at the photo showing the white fixings holding the bench in place,  and the black fixings at  the rear.

The buckles in the second photo was tangled, so the middle buckle was barely protruding from the seat cushions. 

Whilst the bench was out, I noticed the seat cover hooks were not in place, so I fixed them 20190412_132543.thumb.jpg.1a2b10da5478cf9da940cbb13d080af6.jpg20190412_134722.thumb.jpg.ee05df1ef1d0d29eb50a823fc0f64b56.jpg

All done and fitting is reversal of removing - put the rear cushion tags below the bar under the seat backs, locate the front pins in their fixing points, and push down firmly, until they click into position. 

The buckle now fits in its park position when not in use, and the loose feel of the bench is gone. I found a few things that I lost under the bench from the boot.

    1. 1. If you were to consider buying a Hybrid model over 5 years old, would you be worried about the reliability of the Hybrid system?

      • Not really as Hybrid systems are always reliable
      • Not if it had a Manufacturers Warranty on the Hybrid system
      • I would not buy a Hybrid model over 5 years old
