Replacing Australian XJC Front Seat Belts

Has anyone in Australia replaced the Aust Spec seat belts in their XJC with something similar the the UK/US belts which maintain the open air look of the coupe with the windows down?

It would be easy to just buy belts from the usual suppliers in the UK but these are unlikely to have the Aust standard markings as required here.

If you have replaced the belts, which Aust supplier did you use as I have not been able to find ant suppliers.



where are you located?

Thanks Tom - I have been a member of the Jaguar Drivers Club of Canberra since 1990.

I am not looking at any particular belts as that is what I need to know - if people have changed the belts on their coupes in Australia, what ones did they use and were there any issues.



can you post a picture sample of what it looks like fo OS cars…have you ever contacted geoff sara? he’s worth chatting to

I dont have a pic of the overseas belts other than the top mount is on the body just over your shoulder. The aussie cars have the top mount in a similar position but not bolted to the body, there is a strap coming down from the roof holding the top seatbelt mount and there is a strap back to the body mount to stop it going forward. The result is that the open coupe look is spoiled by the support straps where on overseas cars the belts are not visible. Yes I know a first world problem but one of the selling points was its pillerless look which is spoiled in aussie cars.

Sorry for the background glutter in my pic.

An overseas car - with the uncluttered look.
