Seat belt adjusters

Postby Margaretdorothy2 » Mon Apr 30, 2007 10:39 am

Anyone know where I can get seat belt adjusters, find that my belt even when lowered is still far too tight and uncomfortable after a long journey. Any suggestions :?:

I doubt that they can be adjusted.

Is this what you mean?

This won't fit the Megane (I don't think?) but you might be able to find something similar?

This is what UK MOT regulations say on the subject of MOT failures:

"... a retracting mechanism does not retract the webbing sufficiently to remove all the slack from the belt with the locking mechanism fastened and the seat unoccupied

Note 1: In doubtful cases, this should be checked with the seat base set in its rearmost position.

Note 2: The vehicle presenter should be advised of and given the opportunity to remove any temporarily fitted device likely to cause failure under this reason for rejection before notification of refusal is issued."

Then, I am not sure what the insurance company may say in case of an accident. In any case, don't fit this thing to the passenger belt due to possible legal issues...

Sorry, I recognise the problem, but don't know how to help.

Thanks to you all, managed to adjust belt, moved it up slightly, this solved the problem even more when I moved my seat back a little.
