    Undo the bolt holding the belt reel in place then the belt will come free. I'm sending them off tomorrow to be re-webbed :-)

    Thatís a lot of work!!! You were wouldnít think you could get results like that!

    What carpet did you use and where did you get it? (Apologies if I missed the info in your thread!)

    Hi Adrian - I actually bought the roll of carpet 7 years ago to amke some mats and to recarpet the car but never got round to doing the main carpet!!!


    https://www.clubscuderia.co.uk/forum...059#post768059


    Anyway the company is : https://www.carcarpets.co.uk/


    The carpet type I ordered is: KRUL Kensington Luxury Wool - Ruby


    Its pretty much the same colour but about twice as thick and a lot nicer


    It was £65 for the roll but I'm sure prices have charged since then! They also do binding which at the time was £35 to do 2 mats plus add a rubber backing. All very reasonable.


    Link to buying a roll - £65 per metre

    Come on Adrian, you only needed to look back 7 years, think you could make a bit more of an effort to find it

    Definitely worth doing, Jeff, and looks good. When my carpet was replaced I went for a similarly much thicker one than the original. I guess there's nothing wrong with the thinner original carpet but it did lift the interior putting in a more plush one.

    Now that the seat belts are removed I'm sending them off to Quickfit Safety Belt Service Ltd. (same place as Adrian IIRC) to get them rewebbed. Only the driver's side needs doing (picked up on MOT) but thought it would be best if they both matched. Ive also asked them to resew the badges back on.

    Been quoted:

    We can replace the webbing on your belts for £35 plus VAT per belt and
    usually re-stitch any labels etc.. back on to the belt.

    Delivery charged at £12.50

    Standard black I'm afraid - I don't think they do cream belts! ;-')


    So pulled the center piece and carpet piece off - very easy because th fir tree clips were past their best.

    I've bought 20 clips altogether at 19p each which is enough to do both doors plus a few spares.

    You can see how loose the other clips were

    Although tedious I found best way was to unscrew clip holder from panel and the twist it out so as not to risk damaging the panel

    The holder is a bit thin so to avoid deforming it I actually cut the back of the clip with a stanley knife.

    One small thing I noticed that was stopping the carpet panel sittting flush was I hadnt trimmed the carpet close enough to the profile of the backing board.

    Small cut in teh carpet with a knife allowed it to go either side of teh bolt. Paranoid about overtrimming the carpet and allowing bare meteal to show! eek!

    Time to replace the wrong way round switch for passenger window. I gently prised it out with a knife

    I also noticed that the cable was hanging too low so undid the screw to the left to give me a little bit of wiggle room then pushed it up under the panel and re-tightened screw.

    The switches push out from teh back forwards but you have to squueze the large springy clips.

    Here's the swiches clipped back in so both the windows are angled towards each other

    I switched on the ignition to check they all lit up and operated properly. Samll confession - I forgot to check which switch operated each window and put the panel back before realising the switches were operating the wrong windows DOH! Had to take it out again and swap them over.

    All good now - got the 2 different type logos pointing th eright way, forward most switch operates the passenger window and rear switch operates drivers (in UK) door. Also it all lights up to as a diode was a bit intermittant in one switch. Happy days although it might take a while to get used to the switches being the other way round LOL

    Will be doing the same at some point, perhaps over next winter as I've been meaning to do it for a couple of years. Cheers to you and Adrian for details of who does it and the 'how to', never had them out before. My normal procedure for removing all the panels with hidden clips is very much trial and error........ normally followed shortly afterwards by an order for a new clip
