    Smile Aftermarket Recaro's and standard seat belts

    Hi,

    I have got a set of aftermarket Recaro's waiting to go in. I just wondered what you did about using the original seat belts with these? Does the seat belt detatch from the original seats?

    Thanks in advance

    I put vectra recaros in my van and the seat belts did detach as they are bolted to the frame work of the runners, the problem I had was the the runners that came with the recaros were no good for the Astra but they had a c section adaptor fitted, when i asked recaro about a fitting kit the fella was next to useless, so in went a lot of work to adapt the standard runners to fit the new seats

    If you approach Recaro you may have better luck as you have after market seats, I have seen some ads on e bay and the like for different fitting kits which hopefully have the seat belt fitting already attached.

    Hope you get them sorted

    Thanks for the reply.

    I priced up the Recaro frames, but they are crazy money. I've brought a set off EBay for aftermarket seats so I'll see how they all fit together. It was just fitting the seat belts to the frames that I was worried about.

    Regards
