No rear seat belts in 1993 Samurai- can I fit them?
I am considering buying a 1993 Samurai but am concerned that there don't seem to be any rear seat belts. I have two young children and want to have three point belts in there. Should such a car have these fittings or at least the fixings for such a belt? Where could I get one from?

On my Samurai the rear seat belt retractors bolt to the floor behind the seat almost against the tailgate . The other end is attached to the rear seat in the middle ( 2 passengers in back only ) . As if there was enough room for more ! You could probably find some seatbelts in a junk yard on a wrecked Samurai. Or maybe online .

You have to pull the seat belts out a way as
you said & then when you get them through
or around the seat, however they go,you snap
back & forth till they lock. The same thing
you do while in the drivers seat with your seat belt.
When done the child seat is kind of sloppy
in my opinion. Not really secured down tight
I would suggest you get help from an experienced
person that has kids & those seats to install
Hi Rick, I think you should talk to your local porsche dealer and ask them for a diagram of the structure of the vehicle and then you can figure out where to fix the belt. Did you buy a genuine seat belt or an after market one?
OK. On the front edge of the seat bottom cushion, pull up hard, both sides. This will dislodge the 2 clamps that holds the seat cushion to the floor. Pull the seat cushion out & set it aside. You will now see the female latches bolted to the area where the rear of the seat cushion meets the rear seat back bottom. Remove the bolts (14 mm I think).
Ugh, I once tried to remove a REAR seat belt in a Jeep Cherokee that had a tear in it, and I couldn't get the $&*&$# thing out. Check your front belt again though, are you sure it's an allen head bolt? I think it may be a torx head. The torx is more of a star pattern, each indent is rounded, where the allen head is a definite square flat edged pattern. Hope this makes sense. The point being if it is a torx head, you won't get it off w/ an allen wrench, you need the torx. You can buy a set to fit a ratchet, just make sure it has one that's large enough. Let me know the outcome! good luck countrycurt0
