Wanted Seat belt arm extender

Cleaned up the garage, found parts laying around, but it turned out to be a complete Volvo 480? If you want to sell your car (480 only) you can place an advert here.

Hi All.
Just snapped the passenger side seat belt extender thingy!

Thanks

Where did you snap it?

Our good friend Ortovox has done a Seat extender repair piece.

I think 'Arthy' drilled a small hole into each piece and inserted a steel pin, then glued it
super glue won't cut it, too much stress, and it's shiny palstic with a very low surface tension, not as bad as Poly Prop or Polyethylene :wink:

This guy has 3D printed ones for sale but about £40 direct from Shapeways
https://www.shapeways.com/shops/volvo-480-spare-parts
Daniel Lindenburg from the 480 Facebook group has also posted some for sale in the past

Sounds as though you should be able to drill and pin it as Alan says

There are some people who have bought all the remaining stock of the Volvo dealers, and sell them for inflated prices. Not mentioning any names, those who wander the forums and Facebook groups know who they are.

Sorry Nigel - I have checked my stock of spares and I could help you out with a driver's side arm, but not a passenger side one. That's just Sod's Law in play I guess!

Good luck with repair efforts; as others have said it will need more than just glueing…

Best

you can some times repair them but need to use proper plastic weld or add some pins and glue.

Can you post a picture of broken arm ?

Thanks Norm!
Terry had one 😀. I also got a fog light to replace the cracked one I've got.
Had a nice chat with him too!

Thanks!
