- Fits 1979-1989 Mustang Coupe, Hatchback and Convertible.
I have a 89 Mustang Convertible GT 5.0 that was recently purchased with defective rear seat belts, both were locked up and would not extend. I bought this kit to replace them. After I removed the rear seat bottom to expose the seat belt mechanisms I realized the ones here are larger in size than the factory and I was not able to reuse the plastic housings from the original. I was able to adapt the new belts, but there are no guides or stops to keep the them from retracting back under the seat. I am currently exploring a way to stop them from reeling all the way in and forcing me to fish them out when needed. Good new is they do work, thus the 3 stars. I am thinking these were not made for the convertible and I may have ordered the wrong part. Not sure, just be aware of this.
Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!

Not an OEM fit on a 1989 Convertible

I purchased this kit due to my original belts were not retracting anymore. The instructions state you must reuse original retractor assembly dust covers. You cannot due to the much larger retractor assembly on these replacements. So, I did modify the top part of the dust cover by cutting it down (as per the instructions) and pulled the seatbelt through. This does allow me to grab the seatbelts from the side of the seat to hook them but does not keep the seatbelts clean (I need to clean and keep the floor pan clean so the seatbelts stay clean). The instructions mention a rivet, but there was not one on my dust covers, they were plastic with latches.
The color match is very good. You can change the female end or not, the new retractor side will lock on either. These are a must to restore safety.
Are there any replacement retractor dust covers which will fit these replacement belts?
