    Default Oops!! Snapped the seatbelt bolt!

    As above! For rear seatbelt bracket and tenision (held down for left and centre belts.

    I took it out. Was a easy process. (changed seats) put bolt back on. Tight... So took it out and retried. Tight. Thought it was weird. So tried again. Thinking maybe tight first then easy but no it snapped !!! Now i have a snapped half stuck in the thread hole. No way to grip remove as its inside the hole to bolt area.

    Any advice? Weld the belts down??

    I have this...

    You can only try them, you need to carefully drill a pilot hole in the sheared bolt, make sure you have a good drill bit, then try the removers.

    I have done it successfully on other cars. Or, carefully drill the bolt out with wider and wiser drills then retap the thread.
