Center Seatbelt Bolts, MN

I need to put my center seat belt back in. Both of my original bolts are stripped out. I just need the bolts and the rubber things that are the bolts. If you have the belt too and it is in good condition and has the black buckles I'll take it too.

What do you mean by "rubber things that are the bolts"?? Rubber fillers are what come stock on bucket/console trucks....they press into the threaded hole on the body for the center belt bolts.

I think I've still got my bolts lying around somewhere...just the bolts though.

Its not a hold plug/filler

I dont really know what to call it. A thick rubber washer? Its a rubber spacer to hold the belt end about 3/4" above the floor of the truck.

You could use a metric grade 8.8 bolt with a washer to fasten it down. However if the welded in bolt is stripped you need a die to rethread it.

hmm...must be a dumb ford change from 01 to your year then. lol. My bolts do the supporting...the bolt is sorta 'held' in the 'belt end' using one of those clips that come on your drums and rotors from the factory...keeps the bolt 'attached' to the belt end, thread bolt into hole in floor, the bolt has a big fat notch to keep it above the floor, bam! hope that made sense. I'll see if I can't find my bolts. I think I just threw them out the other day cleaning out the truck! lol.

Its a specially shapped bolt, so a bolt from the hardware store wont work.

Heres some pics. It is a Torx 50 head. I only have a Torx 47. Therefore I have a couple stripped bolts.

Here's how it all goes together:

Im guessing in 04 they changed it up a bit. I went to the yard and noticed in the 03's that where they attach to the floor the plastic moulding was different. Also they had chrome buckles instead of black plastic. Both are a Trox 50 thought. Let me know what you have. I have one "rubber thingy" and I could make another one if I really needed too.

Hmm now I'm curious what the rubber thing looks like on the truck. Could you not use washers?
