Unless the previous owner did a DIY setup there with custom bolt bracket thread or whatever this is what you should have:

I dont know... that receptacle is extremely close to that center console carpet, something has shifted the seats closer to the console.... are the rails squared up with one another evenly. They might not be and the seats are going in crooked. Just a wild guess.... and yes those spacers (not the square ones) looks long.

I don't think the rails were misaligned but they could have been. I do not have that spacer in the pic above and my threaded part is longer. I took the seat out for the long drive home and took some pics. It was definitely rubbing the carpet; I attached some pics of that.

So where can I get the right hardware for 3 point belts?

No need to buy anything..

1st flip the box 180 so that the side with the edge cutout is on the lower part of the side bracket and this will allow the box to sit properly on the side bracket's curved surface.
Also remove the black tape from the box.


2nd if still the whole assembly hits the tunnel carpet cut a bit the core threaded part althought from the photo it looks to be the correct size.

btw the sliders can't be aligned in a wrong way as they do bolt in holes in the floor.

If you insist on buying new

part numbers are :
996 521 927 90 for outer side
996 521 925 90 for inner side
Porsche sells them as a complete fastening kit and not one by one.

Also FIY the spacer is there in case you don't have a 6p lap belt attached together with the 3p belt buckle so that the 3p belt buckle won't move.

The Bevel on the lower section of the block should be against the seat frame bracket... not facing outward as 911slow indicates.

John's input reminds me of the guys on the 993 board. I learn something on nearly every post.

knfparty - Why the tape?

got it guys. Yeah my plan B was to just hacksaw some off if I had to but I guess assembling it properly would be a good plan A

Bringing this thread back from the dead as I am having the same issue that OP had due to the longer spacer seen in the first set of photos above. I bought GT3 seats separately as singles, and for whatever reason one of the seats has the longer spacer, while the other has the "normal" spacer seen in 911Slow's pictures. Right now I have the longer spacer installed on the passenger seat, and it is bugging the hell out of me due to the fact that since the bolt head is extending far enough to contact the side of the center tunnel it is transmitting vibration in the cabin. Any idea where I can buy just the belt receptacle spacer? All I can find so far is the assembly (mounting block, bolt, spacer) for $250...no thanks! I suppose I can wander down to the hardware store and attempt to find a match, but I'd rather get the genuine part if I can.

Sorry, I should have been more clear. The issue I am having is not with the belt receptacle, but with the bolt spacer used to snug up the receptacle against the mount on the side of the seat.

Here is the longer spacer that I currently have installed, and that is resulting in the bolt head hitting the center tunnel:




Here is the shorter spacer that is installed on my other seat, and results in plenty of clearance between the bolt and center tunnel.




I suspect that the longer spacer is intended to mount on the door side where clearance is not an issue, but unfortunately it seems I was missing some hardware on one of the seats I bought. At the moment, all I need is the thinner spacer to replace the long spacer that I am using on the passenger side.

Hope the issue is clearer now.
