Re: How to replace rear center seat belt on Nissan Safari?

If it's like the 80, I had to remove the upholstry from the rear, unbolt and replace. Had to take the seats completely out. Was an easy job, just fiddly.

Importing a defender from the UK

Hi All,

Before I start researching this, has anyone imported a Defender from the UK? Looking to replace the cruiser with something newer.

Looking to price up a Mall crawler, 8+ seater 90 or 110. Used by a mum do drop the kids off at school.

Thanks,

Bill

Those dog bones will help, but you will need to follow the factory instructions for adjusting the handbrake, since I put the dog bones in and learnt how to adjust it properly I havent had any issues.
