My problem: one side of the belt goes though the seat side holes and the other side does not. Is there somewhere that I can buy a more flexible/shorter seatbelt. ( the thing where you actually push the seatbelt clip into) I can not get it to flex into the side hole.



I probably will just buy a harness bar if I can't get this to work out.


Thanks for any help.

does the female part of the seat belt have a pretensioner on it? look to see if it has an electrical connector made into it

I'm not quite sure you mean. There is a wire that comes out of it that tells the computer if you have the seatbelt clipped in or not. Is that what you mean? and if not the seatbelt light will come on over the dash and beep constantly.. But I can just unplug it if I need to.

You can unbolt the seat belt and cut a part of the plastic surround off. The female part of the buckle is held to the seat bracket by a bolt, with the plastic piece holding the fabric in a vertical position. If you cut off the top 1 or 2 inches of the plastic portion, it'll lower it since the fabric won't be held in that position.

no, for airbag deployment, I dont remember if these cars have pretensioners. A small c02 charge that locks, then pulls the seat belt down to keep you against the seat. If it doesnt have one of those then go find a seat belt unit that is longer and compatable with your buckle.

Awesome, have you done this? I know some cars don't have the fabric and instead are held up by a metal rod.

Ohhhh hmm, maybe I should call a ford dealer and figure that out. That wouldn't be something I'd want to mess around with. I'm assuming no though since tons of people run racing harness that do not use any of the stock seat belt pieces.

Ok, will do

Not to my own car since I have a 4 point harness, but I've taken out plenty of seats in SN95 Mustangs and all of them have a plastic sleeve that holds up the female buckle :)
great, I'm going to give this a try

Gr8 photo man...those chairs give me a boner...what chairs are they and where'd you buy 'em? Sorry for OT. :humpnana
Thanks, they are Corbeau Forza Seats in Vinyl. I bought them here

I'm not too sure exactly what you want. Are these sufficient for you? If not, I can get a wider angle for you.


THe belt should not be twisted like mine is however..

Do you have any pictures of how you mounted your 4pt.

Thanks guys, taking off the plastic around the seatbelt worked. Reps.

I had to take off the bezals on the seat however in order to get the seatbelt buckle to fit through the hole. The seatbelt fabric is a little too short. But this will have to do for now.

Are these seats pretty comfortable? I'm looking into them but I would get the wides cause I'm a bigger guy. I'm just worried about fixed back seats in a dd. Thanks.

My passengers have never complained. But they are not uncomfortable and they are not comfortable, so the comfort level is somewhere in the middle. I personally think they are fine for quick trips. But I went on a 3-4 hour drive last year and by the end of the trip I was ready to get out of them. But for quick trips they are great. I'm not sure I'd recommend them though just because of that sidebar they have unless you plan on running a harness. It's kinda a pain to buckle your seatbelts with that sidebar.

Ya know, there's a procedure to do that takes literally 2 minutes to disable the beep when your seatbelt isn't connected. The light will still show up on the dash but the annoying beep will go bye-bye
