Something new (rear seat related)?

When I bought #490/1000, I was the 3rd owner. First, a lady in Boston, then a kid in Lowell, and then me. When I looked at the back seatbelts, I thought someone took out the seat and was too lazy to put the seatbelts through their holes. Of course, I was too lazy to put them in after I realized I'd have to loosen the bolts to get enough room...

Well, forward 19 years later. Today I was giving the seats their annual leather treatment, and decided I would take out the rear seat to clean and finally route those belts since I couldn't feel the hole with the seat back in place.

Well, well, well. What did I find but factory sealed holes in my seat back. Was this a dealer task that was overlooked? My car has never had the rear seat belts through the seat and I'm not going to change it now.

Anyone else have this or did the dealer do their job and punch the holes in the fabric behind the seat?








A little quirk, I guess. Can't believe it took me that long to actually pull 3 bolts to check out what was back there.

They aren't holes the seat belts are meant to go through, they are pockets where you can curl up the belts and buckles and stow them away in there.

I thought the same thing about them coming through about ten years ago, then realized it was as Fuel said. I think I saw a picture somewhere in a brochure once too that showed them tucked in.

Seems to make more sense for a car where the seat back could fold down, but the center arm rest does I guess.

That same thing happened to me!! Took apart to clean and when I reassembled, I couldn't figure it out. Left it alone and found a thread on here about that LOL
