I’ve got a 96 Eddie Bauer and have recently been installing vinyl flooring, replacing the carpet.

I’ve spent 2 weeks stuck on one bolt: that bastardly T50 seatbelt bolt, backseat, right side. I scoured this forum and tried everything in the books to salvage, but ultimately drilled it out.

My question is, where do I find a replacement bolt? Haven’t been able to find one ANYWHERE online. Should I scout scrapyards to try and find one? At a loss here, any help appreciated.

Welcome senor_marteen, I see you were a lurker like me. I just recently started posting because I finally got me my 2nd FSB. Same day I went searching because I stripped mine this past weekend lol. And of course miesk5 and BigBlue94 are here to help and give you the sunny side of things. Thanks for posting this great info guys! Exactly what I needed.
