I did a bit of searching and didn't find a clear answer. I know there are quite a few neon experts here that will know off the top of their heads. 

Are dodge neon front seat belts interchangeable? I have some seats from an srt4 with the receivers attached, and need to buy some seatbelts that will work with them. There are a few neons in the junkyard here. I need to know if there are certain years I need to get the belts from or trim levels (2dr/4dr) I need to watch out for? Any info is appreciated.

 

Thanks

In reply to Shavarsh :

I cannot confirm that specifically, but I do know all first-gen seatbelts are the same across the trims.

The Neon being what was, I can't imagine Chrysler would not use the same seatbelts practically across their entire line, let alone within a given model.

I just removed the SRT seats from my 02 R/T turbo, and slid the original leather seats back in, due to me being 60.  Did not have to change anything regarding seat belts, and I would bet a reasonable amo0unt of money you could drop back a generation, too.

If it is a problem, the latch end bolts on to the seat frame the same on all of them, so you can swap it from seat to seat if you need to.

Latch end the same. Just confirmed with my first gen acr seatbelts hooking into a second gen sxt seat receptacle.

Also, I assume they are held in by a torx head bolt?

T60 if memory serves me correctly.

I think t55, but can't reliably say. T60 may be correct as well.

I can confirm its T50 from the ones I pulled. New question. I pulled these belts from a chrysler/dodge of some sort (maybe a sebring? 2002?). The belts were in great shape and I confirmed on a neon in the yard that they fit into the receivers. 

 

However when I got the first one out and retracted it, it locked up and wouldn't release the belt. A quick google in the yard led me to recall issues and multiple posts about seatbelt replacement after this issue. So my question is this. Can someone clear this up for me? Is there a reason not to use the seatbelts with the electric module, and is there a simpler car I can get the belts from to avoid any issues?

I ended up leaving this pair in the yard but would like to go back and grab some fully mechanical ones.
