Step 02

Fit the alignment pin of the Right Seat Belt Pin 2 into the smaller of the two posts at this location on the Rear Right Side Panel (also marked ‘R2’), then secure the Right Seat Belt Pin 2 into place with one (1) GP screw as shown:

Step 03

Thread the free end of the Front Right Seat Belt through this hole of the Rear Right Side Panel, as shown:

Step 04

Slide the Seat Belt Clip over the end of the Front Right Seat Belt, as shown:

Step 05

Thread the smaller slot of the Right Seat Belt Holder over the end of the Front Right Seat Belt as shown, taking care not to twist the belt:

Step 08

While holding the Right Seat Belt Holder in place, turn the panel over and secure it into place with one (1) GP screw:

In the same way as before, fit the alignment pin of the Right Seat Belt Pin 1 into the smaller of the two posts at this location on the Rear Right Side Panel (also marked ‘R1’), then secure the Right Seat Belt Pin 1 into place with one (1) GP screw as shown:

Step 10

Retrieve your Interior assembly from the previous pack. Fit the two lower posts of the Rear Right Side Panel into these holes on the left edge of the Interior assembly while at the same time, aligning the rear tab of the Rear Right Side Panel to the rear shelf mounting hole:

While holding the Rear Right Side Panel in place, secure it to the Interior assembly from below with three (3) GP screws:

Once this panel is mounted and I was happy with the slack in the belt, I cut off the excess seat belt material:

Thoughts


This pack was just like the previous one, so we knew exactly what to do. I believe this pack also completes the interior of our GT-R.
