Convertible Vehicles - Seat belt guides
05-09-2012, 06:47 AM
I have a 1995 TA vert and I dont have any holes on the seats or head rests for our seat belt guides to go, don't we use the guides? Would make it look better. Any pics to show yours? thanks

Apparently the LT1 convertibles did NOT have the guides. The other models DID, including the T-top cars. Here are some pictures (which show this on each model). Clearly the 'vert was missing them. I pulled these pictures from my '96 brochure when I had my '96 Formula. By the way, my '01 'vert has the guide holes in the seat. I just broke one accidentally last month so I didn't even have to look. Very inexpensive and the dealer still had them in stock. Not sure what year they changed the convertibles to include the guides. I would guess '98 and up. Hope this info and the pictures helps (just click on them to enlarge a few times).

My 'vert has guides. I've broken them on each side

Mine weren't broken, but I removed them because I didn't like the way they looked. Also swapped the headrests left to right so the residual indentations aren't as visible. It's a wee bit of a further reach to grab the belt, but it's not a DD anyway.

I use and have replaced mine, I keep extras on hand when I find them cheap.

Ok thanks everyone, glad to see my car wasn't left out, lol, I like the look of the guides not showing but its a little pain to reach them.

97 was the 1st year for camaro verts to get the guides, mine has it now since I have seats form and 02, but I liked better with out them.
Out of 9 F-body's I've owned I can't recall one of them that had both guides intact, from 1970 to 2002. Count your blessings your car doesn't have them.
