Hi,
93 Corolla XLi 5-dr hatchback failed NCT for damaged drivers seat (side ripped) + seat belt (frayed), having trouble finding parts off a dismantled/scrap car.
Does anybody know if the seats/seatbelts from 90s Starlets would be the same (they seemed to have a lot of common parts between 1.3 Corollas and Starlets)

Cheers..

You can put a seatcover on the seat it will pass on that then

Know a guy in laois breaking a corolla, he'd have a seatbelt there and probably a seat too if interested?

Probably a couple of photos here might have helped..
I should have known better really but all the same these bits were only slightly less worn last year and the year before and they passed fine.

I did hear about just putting a seat cover on and see if it might pass that on re-test, there is metal exposed a bit so was thinking of getting some of the foam over that and glueing/stitching and then put seat cover over it?



On the seatbelt, I actually got talking to a fella off Donedeal who dismantles Starlets, he mentioned carefully cutting the frayed strands and then sealing with a lighter (or I was thinking soldering iron), he reckoned he got one to pass like that before?



@DjNr8

Thanks for the tip, I'll see how I get on and might pm you alright, thanks

Not ment as spam but that doesn't always work... There was I time there when they wouldn't look at a car with the seats covered and it's still a case where it depends on the tester, some will throw a blind eye but some won't... The seat 1 is just another lousy visual tbh...
Sorry if the op thinks this post was unnecessary Cool

Could you get a loan of a seat n belt maybe? I know I've done it before for a mate with the same issue to get his car passed
