    U found ures easy? did u keep starndard seat belts or harnesses?

    The list of my problem when fitting whe as follows:

    Idiot from cobra didnt specify harness fitment for the subframe, leavin me with no where to bolt one of the lap belt straps, as i didnt realise this i went to fit one and had nowhere to put even a normall seat belt, as u cannot reuse the buckle from the starndard seats as they have tensioners!!

    Then when cobra sent me bolt on harness adaptors, they wuldnt fit they way i wanted and some modification required to fit!

    It was mainly jus the hassle of removin and fitting twice that was the pain!

    Oh ye (sorry 4 massive post) when i tried to remove the bolt for the seat belts and buckle from under the rear bench, the bolt woukld actually not come out, and still will not. anyone know how to remove a b***hin bolt?

    the side ones where the straps go through, (if you have a harness fitted) apparently they did not use enough fabric so when my fat ass was sat on it, over a period of time it streched and then popped around the eyelet ;-0

    wow how much hasell, is this the drivers side or not as if you live anywhere near there factory and have any problems call them up, if you take your car in the seats they will sort the problem out for you usualy for free,

    as reargs for the removal of the rear bench bolt ( do you mean the rear seat ones) you need the right size torex key (has to be exact size) and a big bar to put on the wrench and brute force
