removing bolt for middle seatbelt

Hi,

I was looking at building a new parcel tray for my ED, but i dont know how to remove the seatbelt bolt. Is it high tensile or illeagle to do it (obviously i plan on putting it back on). Ive just had a couple of goes and because it is round underneath i cant get a good purchase on it.

Any pointers would be great.

Thanks in advance
Ivan

Re: removing bolt for middle seatbelt

if you remove the middle seat belt it is illegal, as the car is licensed to seat 5 passengers for example if you have 5 belts. I know this because I do roadworthy's and have been told that the car has to get a new compliance plate to cover the missing belt.... real headache trust me....

Drive it like you stole it.....

Thanks mate,

but, i don't want to remove it permanantly, i just want to replace the parcel shelf, which i cant do at the moment because the seatbelt is in the way. I jsut want to take it off, replace the parcel tray and put it back on (i still want five belts). Is this still illeagle?

Re: removing bolt for middle seatbelt

No you can remove it and bolt it back in, perfectly legal exercise, as long it is done up tight (technically should be meeting some torque setting) but really tight is good enough.

No idea how to remove it, type of material it is made of either, try the local panel shop ? they may know.
