Hi,

I need to replace my seat belt because someone thought it would be funny to cut it in half while it was hanging out of the door. I've got a 1999 Toyota corolla and I want to know if I bought one off of eBay from a similar model to mine will it fit?

Thanks for any advice.

Yeah it will, but if buying a used one, make sure there is no damage to it and test the mechanism before you use it.

This is a YouTube link to fitting it

If I was in your situation I would phone up a local dealer and ask for a price, buying a second hand seat belt from eBay or a scrap yard you wouldn't know it's history. Most scraped vehicles have been in an accident and the belt has been put under stress, and you won't know if the seat belt will take another hit. I might be wrong, but I'd never buy second hand anything that would potentially save my life in an accident.

It should but if you got children then I would recommend if you get it done by Halford or someone specialist in the job like a friend in mechanic etc..safety comes first

Thanks ktm666. The guy said it's in good condition but I'l make sure he checks the mechanism.

Thanks for the youtube link.

I checked with the garage I normally use and he said I would have to buy it direct from Toyota at the cost of £150 plus labour. I can't afford that right now. I never really thought that a used one could be dodgy.

they have ball bearings in them and if used in an accident the bearings drop into place and you won't be able to use it again.
so an eBay one will be fine .
very easy to fit.
couple of bolts

It might be perfectly safe to buy one, there is just a risk as you won't know what happened to the car it came from. I would check the condition of the belt material for any fraying, check anchor points for damage ie rust fractures or bends and like said above the auto lock mechanism which should lock at a quick pull.

Thanks srp111, I feel better knowing that.

Thanks iibdii. I've found someone breaking a Toyota on eBay and he quoted me £20 delivered. I'm doing it outside of eBay but I'm going to cover myself with PayPal.

same as above, did this on my 207. found one in the local scrappy which had lots of mechanical issues (i.e. not crash damage) and it was fine

Probably fair observation with recent vehicles, but any currently remaining 1999 Toyota Corollas probably end their days in a scrapyard at end of their useful life rather than through road traffic accident.

Glad to hear other people have had a good experience buying a used one.

There is, because I got a rear seat catch from it, but I can't remember what it's called now. Very competitive prices, beat ebay prices clean out the water
