Default How replace the Pass Seat Belt Anchor '99 V6`

Do I have to remove the front pass seat? It's an XLE and the pass seat
is powered. The tongue of the belt won't lock into the anchor unless
you hold the release button down while inserting the tongue.

Any thoughts? Any long term recalls?

Thanks,

Norm

Front seat belts in the 99 Camry are a pain in the ass. Toyota replaced mine
once under warranty as the retraction was VERY weak. The new ones worked
long enough for the warranty to run out, now one has to carefully thread
them back into the retractors else they get caught in the door frames.

Honda at least used to warranty seat belts forever. Not sure if it's
still teh case. Maybe Toyota does too?

It may be covered. My 1979 MGB is covered for the seatbelt. I got a
recall notice for my seatbelts about 4 years ago from the NTSB. The
problem is that MG no longer exsits in the U.S. It was reborn, a part
of Shanghai Automotive Industry Corporation, but there ar no U.S.
dealers.

Hi, it's done. Just a followup for anyone who cares.

The dealer wouldn't replace it under any extended warranty, they said
if it was 8 years, or 100K miles they'd consider it. My car is a 1999
with 195K km (~120K miles).

So I bought the seat belt anchor for $37CDN (probbly < $20US), anyway
I had to remove the front passenger seat, which turned out to be very
simple, just four easily reachable bolts. Next I unscrewed the old
anchor from the seat and replaced it with the new one. The whole
operation took less than an hour, not counting the time to drive to
the dealer and back twice (They don't carry many parts at the dealer
and so I needed to special order and then pick up). I'm glad I did it
myself as I probably saved $100CDN ($0.47ยข US).

Norm
