About Seat Belt Anchor Centres
Seatbelt anchors are where the seatbelt system is connected to the main chassis of the vehicle. There are three anchors on the rear centre seatbelt, one where the seatbelt reel or pre-tensioner is situated in the centre of the rear backrest, one in the middle of the rear seat section that is attached to the floor where the lap section of the belt is attached, and one in the gap between the rear seat and the rear backrest where the seatbelt stalk will accept the seatbelt buckle and lock the entire system in place. All seatbelt anchor points are secured to the vehicle by anchor-plates and bolts. The use of steel anchor-plates ensures that the bolts do not shear off or pull through the floor when the seatbelt is under load.
There are small cut outs in the rear seat upholstery which enable the seatbelt anchor stalk to be reached. To undo the rear centre seat belt press the button on the seatbelt anchor mechanism. This will automatically release the seatbelt buckle. The seatbelt reel will then take up any slack in the belt.
All seatbelt anchor points must be positioned securely to enable the vehicle to pass an MOT.
- Jaguar was bought out by Ford in 1990, but they didn't really capitalise on the investment. Eventually, Ford sold Jaguar to the current owners, the Indian company Tata Motors.
- Jaguar isn't a big name in F1, but they did have a go. They raced between 2000 and 2004 but didn't perform well enough to justify the costs. They managed a less than stellar ninth place in their final race.
- Steve McQueen was a huge fan of the Jaguar XKSS and even found himself with two driving bans because of his passion for driving fast. He was one of the few people to ever drive an XKSS because only 16 were ever made! McQueen did eventually sell his car, but regretted it immediately and paid more to get it back. The car is now owned by US TV host Jay Leno.
- When they first launched in 1922, Jaguar was called the Swallow Sidecar Company. They changed the name in 1945 because of the unfortunate use of the letters 'SS' by Germany in the war.
- The Jaguar XJ has that luxurious leather interior, but did you know that all of that leather comes very specifically from Scottish Angus Bulls? Bulls don't get stretch marks, and they don't get bitten much by mosquitoes either. Belly and neck skin becomes the dash and door finish, while the backbone and the rump are used for the seats.
