    have you fitted your new half leather seats in???

    if you have, then it sound like you have anchored the seat belt in the wrong position.
    undo the 17mm bolt on the seatbelt and turn the anchor 90 degrees clockwise.

    this will free the seatbelt.................i done this last week when fitting my leather seats lol

    is the seat locked back?

    there is a cable that runs from the passenger side to the locking mech of the seat belt in the middle if the seat is not locked back or the cable has slipped/broke then it will lock the belt

    i have fitted the back ones but i cant get the belt to go down far enough to get it to sit in the anchor so i can bolt it down mate the seat belt is locked to far so the seat belt wont come down to the anchor point. the actual anchor is hovering just above the bench thats how far away it is

    click the rear of the seats into position and it should free the belt
