'91 MR2 Turbo Seat belts and air bags. Replacement?
'91 Mr2 Turbo. Hi guys,My business partner drives a '91 Mr2 Turbo. He loves that car and throws his kayak on the roof every weekend to go to the beach. Rust is a huge problem in Hawaii and now his seat belts are rusted. He had a lot of water leakage from the T-bar. I heard him joke that they may not be functional, throwing me into a panic. How much does it cost to replace them? Can they be replaced? Another question is how much to test or replace the air bags. I want the guy happy - but safe! He thinks he's immortal. I am so appreciative of any advice.

Hello, and welcome to FixYa. Please allow me to assist you.
The MR2 auto transaxles are very reliable units. Just change the ATF with the correct fluid every 30,000 miles. If it has high mileage, 90 + K miles, and is a dirty colour, I'd recommend a transmission flush. This will remove all of the dirty fluid from the system.
The MR2 non-turbo was a fun car, and had very few comon failures.
Try to stay away from the turbo cars, the turbos are know to fail, and the parts and labour to replace the turbo is very expensive.
The MR2s are rather quirky when it comes to servicing the cooling system, you have to bleed the air out. The necessary procedure is in the owner's manual, or online.
Other than those items, the MR2 is a very decent and reliable car. A little noisy, with the engine right behind you, but, that is part of the fun.
Do you have a check engine light? Do you have a NA or a Turbo? Have you checked the air box and or air meter to see if critters have moved in? Have you checked the Idle air bypass valve? Have you Joined the MR2OC.com and used the online big green book to troubleshoot?
If the Rear Lights are the bulbs just like the ones in my 91. There should be 3 screws holding the light housings onto the body. You will need a small prybar (preferrably plastic to limit damage), or a Flathead screwdriver.
Open your trunk lid and unscrew the phillips screw that holds the tab of the light on.
The side (outermost) cover should pop off, using from the farthest aft (back) lip, it will require some force, after that is off, it should reveal two smallish phillips screws holding the rest of the housing on.
Once those are removed, the Light housing just pulls off (mild force required, held in by spring type clips)
Then its just finding the right plug (screw and keyway type) to pull off, revealing the bulb itself.
