Painted & sealed it up, I would like to do more but I need it back together so I can get to work. So it'll have to wait or I should just start looking for another car that isn't a rolling fossil.

Does anyone know the torque specs for the rear seat, seat belts?

I'm having a hard time finding what they should be for some reason.

The driver's side took like 3 minutes of ugga-duggas to get off, while the passenger side was a lot easier & the center ones just zipped off in a second.

From what I can tell is someone has been there before & over torqued the driver's side to the point it dug deep into the plastic for the bench seat & cracked it.

Just went with what felt right. If someone posts the torque specs or I find them somewhere & I feel it needs adjusted, the seat cushion is easy to remove at least.

37 ft/lbs for the rear seat bolt to floor pan. Almost all of the seatbelt related bolts are 37 ft/lbs actually.

Only two that are different is the front seat buckles requiring 55 ft/lbs, and the rear seat belts to shelf panel is 89 in/lbs for the coupes only.

Thank you. I had put them at 27ft/lb, I'll have to tighten them a bit more. I'll likely have to replace the plastic seat support though because it was cracking more while tightening the driver's side bolt down. By 37ft/lb I bet it'll crack completely through.



^ That is at 27ft/lb, the damage to the plastic was already there. Someone in the past must of really torqued it down too tight.

I wonder what Pullapart would charge for that piece?
