Seat belt knob

Postby Wychall » 14 Apr 2019, 14:26

Can anyone enlighten me as to how to remove the upper drivers seat belt mounting? It is the height adjustable one. I guess the knob needs to come off but gentle persuasion has not worked. Should I apply brute force, or am I missing something?

on your SA bus is it a choice of one or other fixing point (high or low) or does it have a variable height adjustable set up, if it's the former then the fixing bolt under the snap on plastic cover should just undo
a picture of your set up would help

if it's adjustable and looks like this then it looks like it's pry off and possibly destroy

Thanks for your reply Aidan. I hadn't considered that it may be SA spec. It is indeed the one that you provided the link to. I managed to get the entire assembly off so will now try the brute force, but hopefully short of destruction. Your linked pic gives me a clue to the press fit nature. ImageImage

It's off!
It was a push fit, but seated in two grooves as shown in the pic. So should anyone else be trying, it's the gentle approach with a modicum of brute force. Image
