Searching for seat belt buckle

Good day,

I converted a Thomas Vista School bus in Germany and now I'm looking for a seat belt buckle as the current one is broken.

Unfortunately the size of the seat belt does not look as standard. I tried several google searches but did not find the right one.

Any idea where to buy a belt buckle as attached with delivery to Germany?

Thank you for your help.
Wolfgang

unfortunately for me here in ohio its winter (early this year).. otherwiser id just go to a Junkyard and grab you one.. from what ive seen most of the thomas conventionals use the same driver belt


this is a place that sells new ones.. I think they ship international? you can call them by telephone (eastern USA timezone) and talk to one of the sales reps if you like..

I go there fairly often to buy parts for my busses.. (they are only like 30 min utes from home and a great coffee shop exists down tye street)..


so if they dont ship international i could prob pick one up and ship to you..

Thank you . I'm in contact with them and they are just looking for the right belt buckle.

They mentioned to ship to Germany.

So if they will have the correct one, thank you for referring to tacbusparts

Hi Wolfgang,
you may ask Christine Espenschied from Mike & B Sales, phone 740 498 7224, mikebsales@outlook.com.
She was helping me a lot finding parts for my 2006 FS65. Shipping to Germany is easy but expensive - 75 USD for a midsize box.

BTW: Do you need a driver seat? I replaced my one recently.
