How do I remove seat belt height adjusters


Recommended Posts

I am installing a roll bar in my GT3. I have to attach the bars front legs first, but when I do so the roll bar can't rotate past the seatbelt height adjusters attached to the slider(It's just too tight of a squeeze). Is it easy to remove the adjuster unit fom the slider and then put back in once the roll bar has cleared the pillar??? Thanks. The tech equip. rollbar install has been a 4 hour battle so far :cursing:

Good luck. I could have warned you that this bar is not a DIY project. I haven't talked to anyone who was able to install it without professional help. I spent a full week on mine and ended up cracking my windscreen and ripping my headliner trying to jockey it into place.

The are two tricks that I know of to installing this beast. One is to use a trailer tie down or some other racheting system to compress the bar legs together to get it to fit more easily. It will spring back one the pressure is released.

The second is to get longer bolts for the lower legs where they bolt into the door sills, as the bolts they supply almost never fit.

Good luck. They should sell that thing with a big warning sticker on it -

WARNING - PROFESSIONAL INSTALLERS ONLY. DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME!

Thanks Karl...Did not have too much trouble getting it into the car...I can bolt in the front legs down by the rocker panel. The problem is when I do that, I can't roll the back legs into position since the seat belt adjustment slider units stick too far out from the upper pillar. If I knew how to remove the adjusters temporarily so that I can rotate the bar past them, I will be in business. So my real question is how to remove them. Any idea's. Someone told me that they can be pryed off from the actual slider with a screw driver, but I am unsure. Any idea's Loren??? I understand that you are the DIY guru. Thanks :notworthy:

I sent you a private email with the slider trim removal instructions.

Ohhh, you must of sent it to my real email address at home, not a Private Message. I will check my mail when I am home.

I am assuming it's my email address I used to register with for this forum???Thanks again Loren!!!
