How do I install/remove rear seat belts on a 996?

Recommended Posts

Howdy! Well, the baby is finally old enough to be facing forward, so I'd like to put the Roundabout in the rear seat of my wife's 1999 996. Especially as we're going away on a club drive this weekend, and I'd HATE to have to take the BMW wagon instead. :(

The previous owner removed the rear seat belts. The (female) buckle ends are still mounted to the center tunnel, just the belts are missing.

A friend sent me a set of rear belts. Can anyone provide some guidance as to how to install these suckers? What other parts do I need? Anyone have an illustration, perhaps? The same friend is sending me some bolts (he took all this stuff out of his 996tt that he's building into a race car), but he can't remember how everything came out.

Any and all help would be appreciated!!!

Thanks, Loren! (Loren sent me the diagrams for how to reinstall the belts.) As always, much appreciated.

Next question: now if only I could figure out how to remove the trim pieces to get to the seat belt installation area.... Anyone have any experience/ideas on the best way to remove all of the side trim between the B and C pillars?

Thanks again!

Are you sure that the belts were really removed? When I installed my Roll Bar I only pushed the buckles behind the covers.

For me it sounds strange that somebody did the work to remove the belts completly (which is a fair bit of work), but left the buckle ends mounted on the tunnel....

Before you rip the whole stuff apart maybe you first remove only toe small plastic covers on top to look what's behind.
