seat belt tongue doesn´t fit receiver
« on: May 04, 2017, 07:44:18 AM »
The seat belt tongue in my T/A doesn´t go into the receiver.

While the tongue is approx. 1,6 inches wide (1 39/64") the receiver only has an inner width of 1,5 inch (1 1/2").

Here are pics of the imprints from both parts:

My suspicion is that a PO put at least one wrong part (i.e. the receiver from a different car) in the T/A.

Can somebody point me in the right direction? Which part is T/A and which isn´t? What are the correct widths? Where would I locate the correct receiver or does somebody still have them laying around in the garage? I´m ok with parts from a different GM model as long as they fit. I don´t want to shed out 500 $ for a complete set of new T/A seat belts.

There's variations between models and years, and also things like deluxe belts or coloured covers that are not compatible. Shoot some better pics of what yours are and year.
