You’d be better removing your belts and getting them re-webbed.

They do a fantastic job and even sew on the bottom labels, so anyone inspecting them will assume they’re OE.

Thank for your message, they look fantastic. I honestly don't want to disassemble and ship my belts together with their fasteners, i thought it would be almost plug and play.

Not to sound arsey but at £44 for a pair of brand new seat belts id be desperately concerned about their quality & integrity in a serious impact.

No, you need to send the whole assembly but it’s quite simple to do. There’s pyrotechnics involved, so leave it to the professionals.
Yup, tensioners in the fasteners that pull (very tight I believe) in a serious impact.

I had a look at those eBay seatbelts. They’re not suitable IMO. You’ll have problems with the electrics, they’re not equipped with the pre-tensioner gubbins (the explosive bits) and I think you’ll be getting into more trouble than what you’re saving. I think I paid £160 all in for mine or thereabouts. What price keeping it safer and correct ?

Ditto David.
Best advice on all things safety related is to never cut corners.
I think your's was £160 well spent.
£40 odd quid isn't going to cut it. UK supplier but what origin? Not saying all Chinese imports are bad as I've had some very well engineered & built stuff (not car related) from China but...
