Busted seatbelt

So I took the original seat belt out when “demo” day was here. It unraveled and now it won’t work... so I called around and the cheapest to recharge it is around $80.

I slid my seat back about 4 inches because I’m 6’ tall. Does anyone know what length, if any specific, that I need to ask for or will any standard 3 point harness work? Thanks

When you say recharged is this a pretensioning belt that has been set off? If it is I'd recommend spending the eighty bucks because the airbag sensors won't be happy even if you install another 3 point belt.

That said, it would be no problem to install any old 3 point belt that will work with your seat/body configuration--probably not as effective as the original but you can't live forever anyway.

I did the same, for the same reason, but installed a captain's chair I bought at LKQ, atop a 7" swivel base. I ordered the 60" (?) 3 point belt from Seat Belts Plus, but then had to order a 6" extension just to give me enough length to bolt to the underside of my seat frame. If you aren't installing a swivel base, I'd just order the longest 3 point harness they have, and use pieces of 1/8" bar stock to extend the belts to wherever you're going to bolt them.

I'm with Ol Trunt on this ... buy a new one for $80.00 .... and like plfking said, buy the longest ... unless you know the size that is came with originally. Hint, your bluebird dealer may be able to help with the information.
