Interior Trim

Don't know if anyone has noticed, but on an AU where the front seatbelts come out, over time use of the belts wears away the plastic trim. I have already had this replaced twice under warranty.

Does anyone know if the BA ones will fit do they suffer from the same problem?

Doesn't the BA have the same doors as an AU?

I don't want to have to keep replacing these parts once the warranty runs out.

Thanks.

Our AU1 has done 80000km and this is also happening. I'm glad I'm not the only one (car's out of warranty, so no replacement unfortunately).

Our AU1 has only done 50,000km and has the same problem. Wasnt aware that it was a warranty item? Might have to give it a go.

I'll take some pictures of the replaced trim that is already starting to wear.

I'm not so worried about the trim, I just don't want the seatbelts to wear away and become unsafe.

Cokekid - i have the same problem but it has actually worn my seatbelt and has becomaed frayed on the edge where it rubs. They are expensive to replace.

I thought this would not be a problem on the series 2 and 3 as they have the pre-tensioners and was thinking on replacing mine with these but from LTDHO post i dont think there is any point

I haven't got my camera to take any pics - sorry guys.

Can't beleive the BA still does this.

There will be no problem getting this fixed under warranty.
The service manager told me to just keep bringing the car back if they keep wearing.
