This is awesome. I'll have to do that one day.
This should all be organized on the guides forum !

Gatos I really appreciate these. It's because of those things that I keep my S40.

Best part is that you can get a passengers seatbelt, which is cheaper and easier to get hold of, and use the belt to swap it with the driver's one. Rear seat belts will not do the trick, as they are about 1 &1/2 foot longer and the metal bit that is bolted to the side of the seat is angled.

Seeing this topic reminds me of my search for a beige seatbelt lol.. Phoning up the dealer to find they had the right colour was nice until they dropped a huge 190 quid asking price on top... thanks to yourself though Pinhead had one for a much cheaper 8 quid lol

You need to remove this plastic trim. Easy to take out. There is one clip on the top right hand side of it which releases very easily. See also next photo. Do not remove the screw hoplding the seatbelt yet. We will do so later on.






Undo the bolt (size 14 socket), remove the old seatbelt and put the new one in.

Default Locked Seat Belt

I read this guide and thought very interesting should I ever need it.
The next day, I parked at an angle in a public car park, my seatbelt locked and has not budged since.
As it fits me, it is presumably safe to drive the car but it reminds me of when seat belts were static.
I have lost the luxury of inertia reel.

My car I believe is a phase 1.5, it is a 99 model and is definitely "cross over", in many ways.

I have attached 2 photos which show the pre tensioner with the lower cover panel removed.

And my question !
Is the seat belt a phase 1 or a phase 2 ?
Do any of you knowledgeable people have an easy way to tell please ?
