Hi Folks

I've just discovered that the passenger side inertia seat belt is being eaten alive by the rough edges around the hole through which it emerges at the rear of the car sos . I know this is not uncommon but also that factory replacements are ridiculously dear.

Can anyone advise me if their replacement is a DIY task and a suitable source of new belts?

Many thanks in anticipation (the car is a 2004 Roadster)

There are several threads on this - the best way to find them is using Google as the search engine strangely enough. I know someone has located a good supplier on here sometime back, good luck.

I found a supplier on line but based on North London. As I remember they repaired with a choice of colours and were very reasonable. The whole assembly was removed and refitted by a main dealer.
I took one look at the location of the fixings and chickened out.

I used this company recently. 10/10 for service, quality and price.

Has any one come up with a preventative measure, to stop this wear occuring?
