Hi All,

I have a 80 series wagon, I want to change the rear lap belt to a sash type. Can this be done? Any ideas? I think they aren't safe enough.

Thank you

I think that to do anything with modifying a seat belt requires an engineers certificate. Probably one of the most important safety items in a vehicle. Jump on the Toyota forum. I reckon someone would of had the same concerns as yourself.

Centre belt may be problematic as no where for the top mount.

If seats can be passed as suitable the seat belt can be attached to it but is a bit of a problem with the center one and possibly fairly expensive

Hi Larsy

I am not an engineer. What if you left the original lap belt in place and still used it, but added a second belt of some kind? You haven't amended the original belt, but you have added protection.

There is a harness which is like a racing harness that attaches to the rear floor mount and u thread the lap belt thru the bottom loops
It is for kids but with a belt adjuster it will solve your problem
