Customer Question
My dog destroyed the...

My dog destroyed the safetybelt in de backseat (1 piece) of my 21-years old Golf 3 Cabrio. Is it possible to lower the complete backseat (if so, how do you do it) and replace the mechanism?.

Mechanic's Assistant: Which belt is acting up? And when was it last changed?

It's the belt in the back on the left (when facing forward). I bought the car 4 years ago. I don't know if the belts have ever been changed.

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your Cabrio?

November 1996

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Cabrio yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes, I am fixing it myself but I can't reach the mechanism.I don't find a lever or pulling rope or somethng else to lower or remove the one-piece backseat.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No, if he could advise me on that I think I will manage.
