Ok so it's MOT time and when i got the car the belt was well warn along the bottom edge....

So - Checking out Haynes looks like a relatively simple swap... Dont think i'll be taking the seat out unless i have to tho...

A few questions (annoyed with myself as i should know the answers to these!)..

1. As there's pyro's involved I'd best take precautions and kill the battery before i change it. Have heard nightmares about what can happen if you don't do this right though - is there any specific procedure for removing the battery at all... Haynes just says to switch everything off, remove it and leave for a minute when you reconnect.... I seem to remember it was a little more involved that that???

2. Is it actually possible to change without removing the seat??!!!

3. Anyone any clues to how long it would take (Just as a guide!!)

4. Anyone done this and have any tips at all??

Thanks in advance for any info...

Cheers
Paul

Hah... Knew it... Found Betty's Battery change procedure..... Guessing thats #1 sorted...

Whenever a vehicle battery has to be dis-connected, switch off all equipment,
interior lights etc, close the doors leaving the drivers window open.
Switch off the ignition and remove the key and any DIAG equipment.

Wait a full 3 minutes before disconnecting the battery.

The BSi must be allowed to go to SLEEP i.e. into "power save mode". Do not
operate any equipment on the vehicle during this time. Remember, even
opening the bonnet will wake the BSi on a vehicle fitted with alarm.

If the battery is under the bonnet, open the bonnet first and leave it up. 807
batteries can be dis-connected through the drivers window, remove floor cover
first. (note, Pics are under the passenger seat)

ALWAYS disconnect any DIAG equipment and do not operate any plips from
other vehicles during the 3 minute waiting period.


PROCEDURE FOR BATTERY RECONNECTION
Unless otherwise instructed by Product Service, you must always
carry out the following procedure, often referred to as a "soft re-boot", to
minimise the possibility of the BSi corrupting its own software when
reconnecting the vehicles battery supply.
Ensure the procedure for battery disconnection has been adhered to and
importantly all BSi functions were switched off with the drivers window left
down.
1 Close all doors
2 Remove ignition key if left in ignition
3 Reconnect battery. DO NOT open any doors
4 Wait 10 seconds
5 Switch on headlights through the drivers window (you will hear a "bong") (note: Snap-on says Side-lights)
6 Switch on ignition then start the vehicle and check system functions

NOTE: Upon reconnection, if any vehicle function controlled by the BSi i.e .
interior light is switched on,the internal operation of the BSi has the potential
to spike or corrupt its configuration and software program......

Some questions

Hi,

Hopefully you have done this already since you posted back in 2013; how did it go? The front seat belts in my 307 potentially need to be changed because they don't wind back very well/hardly at all. Is it necessary to change them for this reason?

Hines manual suggests changing airbags and pre-tensioners (seat belts) after 10 years, has anyone done this?

Didn't need to in the end.

Pull the belts out as far as you can and spray with furniture polish, spray it into the mechanism where you can. Let them in and out a few times adding a bit more polish and it sorts it. Also remove all the fluff that will have collected around the reel Mechanism.

Problem solved ( Some find this a temporary fix - Others find it longer term!)....

Is that it? Not not replaced at all?
My belt is really slow to retract. Sounds like this should sort it :confused:

Wash it with soapy water first,it's the grime that slows it down,when it's dry either silicone spray or Mr sheen works
