Replacing Rear Seat Belts

Post by JimG » Wed Jan 02, 2019 8:19 pm

Hi everyone, new member here!

I have just purchased a 2 year old Corsa E, It looks like the rear seat belts have been chewed by the previous owners dog! I'm fairly sure that it will fail its first MOT because of it.

So, I've managed to get some replacement belts and have all that I need to replace them myself. However I am a little nervous of taking off the trim which covers the rear side air bags - within which one of the set belt bolts are located - in case it activates it lol! Should I leave well alone or is the trim removal quite straight forward.

Thanks in advance!

The trim should lever off quite easily. The airbags are activated by impact sensors, not by gentle fumbling around or thumping with your palm, otherwise they would be going off every time kids sit in the back seat!
