    One for AndyH - converting the centre/lap belt to a three point

    I know Mr Hill has done this in the Not-So-Evil-Anymore Bus, hence the thread title... anyone else who has done this please feel free to jump in

    I want to replace the centre lap belt with the facelift three point belt, has anyone got a rough how-to, or explanation on how to do it? Or will it become perfectly apparent how to do it if I get to a scrappy and take the new belt out?
    NOW - Sapphire Black 3dr Astra G

    THEN - Glacier White 2.0Di Estate - 136bhp 1.6 Pineapple Yellow Mk3 - Flame Red 2.0Di Van - Chianti Red 1.8 Coupe - Star Silver 2.2 Zafira - Flame Red 2.2 Linea Rossa Coupe - Titan Gold 1.8 Coupe

    9 Years, 7 Astras, 1 Zafira, No Regrets.

    The pre-facelift ones don't have the mounting point, so you'll have to mount the reel to the back of the seat. I did a how-to ages ago, I'll try find it

    Andy, great guide. Want to do this myself, but 1 question:
    How in the world did you get the original vauxhall clip onto the securon belt?
    Thanks

    Got a cloth three piece rear bench, with 3 point belt, in my shed. Been meaning to take some photos and get it posted in the classifieds section. Was wanting to swap out the matching rear door cards, as I've been debating whether to flog everything as job lot or not. Guess I could let the bench go on its own.

    I'm in East London/Essex border.

    It's the adjustable clip from the lap belt. Look at it closely before you remove it from the lapbelt and all will become clear

    Yeh i realize its the vauxhall clip but how did you get it on to the securon belt? Wanted to clear this up before i buy it. Doesnt the securon have a metal ending which wont let you thread the vauxhall clip on to it?

    I'm looking to fit one of these to our Zaf now as one of our children will be sitting in the middle and I don't like the lap belt!

    Is this the same one used in the How-To?

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/SECURON-SE...item4aa8ddd416

    It seems easy enough to fit.
