how much! for a seat belt!!

just phoned fiat peterborough for a drivers side seat belt and was quoted 227 which sounds like a complete bloody rip off.

does anyone know where to get one preferably new, for a 3dr punto mk2 front drivers side?

You might try Fluffy the Impaler or Shop4Parts. A search will find both.

Re: how much! for a seat belt!!

Just wondering could I get an Omp road 3point harness and just put the single strap under the head rest and bolt to the floor and bolt the two other side straps to the sides? Would this firstly be ok and secondly be m.o.t passable?

I doubt it since the top of the seat does not have belt reinforcements. In a high-speed front-end collision, the belt will just cut through the seat back folding your spine like an accordian. Does that price include the pyrotechnic pretensioner? That may explain the cost involved. Try shop4parts and similar places.

Re: how much! for a seat belt!!

found this one on ebay "fiat punto mk2 osf seatbelt NEW 183438880" but it is not for a Mk2 the part number is wrong. it should be 735321483 just incase anyone wanted to know.

phoned fiat, parts world - uk and shop4parts all over or near 200, the breakers are going to check to see if they have one for me should be around 35.

Re: how much! for a seat belt!!

Picked up a new seat belt from a breakers in manchester 15 and 7 p&p delivered by DHL.

Arrived yesterday, all fitted now, was a bit of a bitch to do tried removing the side rear interior trim panel but it started getting dark so resorted to taking a few bolts out to allow the trim to pull away enough to do the job. only snapped one clip which was mended easily lol. Maybe this time i wont mess up the seat belt getting it stuck in the door and on my velco
