Hi Everybody!
I have a 5yr old Prado. It never leaves the suburbs, I bought it for my wife to use as a tough reliable safe people mover. It is doing its job perfectly but does not have a lap sash belt for the middle seat, or headrests for the back two seats. My kids are growing up and soon will need headrests. Does anyone know how I can get the middle seat belt replaced with a lap sash belt, and the back seats replaced with headrests? This would be much lower cost that replacing the whole car.

Far back seats came with headrests. They live inside the covers off the back of the 3rd row seats. Certainly the post August '99 models had them.

If you want lap sash in the middle, have to go to 120 series, or fit a harness, and put the youngest child there.

My 4 kids are older now. Theres no way I could get them to sit peacefully with 3 in the centre seats. Unless you've got more than 4 kids, then give them a bit of space, separate them with the odd esky, and you'll have a lot more peace and quiet :-)

I have a June 98 Prado, and as Phil said the headrests fot the third row seats are stored inside the seat backs - undo the velco at the top and the 2 zips at the sides of the flap and hopefully you'll find the biggest headrest you've ever seen!

Mr Prado,

Replacing the seat belts is not that easy. The middle seat is not strong enough to mount a lap sash seat belt to it. There is also no place to anchor the belt too. The whole back seat would have to be redesgined and engineered. It would be cheaper to buy a 100 Series.
