Mounting Piont For Inertia Reel Belts

Can some one tell me the location of the fixing point for the Inertia Reel part of the belt set up.

I seem to remember that its behind the triangular cover inside the rear wheel arch, just in front of the damper/spring. Or do you mean the top bolt which is next to the roll bar

As Guy said, it's behind the triangular cover near the rear shock. The pop rivets need drilling out and replacing. There's a bolt hole inside to mount the inertia reel (or at least there was on mine).

It's not unknown to remove the plate and discover an inertia reel unit already fitted!

On my first 7, many moons ago, I used the inertia belts; on one occasion, I came across an increasingly tightening left hander a little quicker than anticipated, the car made the corner, whilst doing so my upper body actually slid out of the car!  After that I had no confidence in the inertia ones at all ...just my 6 pence worth...

For my 21 I bought a set from Redline.

I just cannibalised one IR belt to get a bit of seat belt to repair a swivel chair base. Have another one in the garage.
