Re: Fitting a Baby seat?

Bit of an update, I managed to get an extender off ebay for the front which fits :D bit more expensive than the generic ones, but this one works (the other didnt!) so its worth it. This is the one in case anyone else is looking http://www.ebay.ie/itm/161217882182?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p39...

Re: Fitting a Baby seat?

I reckon a belt of similar lenght t the front should work as the points are closer together, making the belt stretch that bit further. I have ordered an extender it says is for a '97 Cooper, so shou...

Re: Fitting a Baby seat?

I have two child seats in the back. Ya are so close to the back ya don't need to beside the baby. I have my child in the mini since a month old.I had to fit two seat belts to my 81. How did you manage to secure them, the rear belts especially I found far too short & cant get a belt extender to suit?

Re: Fitting a Baby seat?

Re: Fitting a Baby seat?

There is a unit ya can leave strapped in and the seat locks into it. When ya want ta take the baby seat it just unclips. no need to have seat belt wrapped around baby seat no fuss Like the idea of that, but hoping for a little less costly solution. I got a seatbelt extender but wasnt the right one ...
