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 .

I am not familiar with the vehicle but car seats are not all made to fit any vehicle. There are some that require just the lap belt most require an over the shoulder design. You will have to get the store to let you try a few in the vehicle until you find one that suits. I would expect a young child (baby) seat to require a 3 point over the shoulder style seat belt. especially if you are fitting the seat in the middle as this is the worst place in the event of a head on impact, unless you have full restraint. The other thing to remember is that children as they grow older may decide to take the shoulder straps off as you drive, making them more vulnerable. There are devices out there to help prevent this. If your vehicle doesn't have a three point harness in the middle you should be able to get one fitted. Ask you Toyota dealer if there is an approved after market belt
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
