Mitsubishi Shogun - How do I disable the rear seatbelt force limiters - chahock
I have recently bought an S reg mitsubishi shogun. When we went to put our child seat in we came across an issue with the rear seat belts. When they are fully extended, as you need to to put the child seat in, they have a type of friction on them when they recoil, to prevent snap-back. A great safety feature but a nightmare for securely fitting a child seat. I have googled and googled to try and find an answer on how disable this feature but cannot find anything. All I know is that it is called 'belt force limiter'. There is also nothing in the Haynes manual about it.

Is anyone out there able to help me with this please?

Thank you

You can't

Why exactly is it a 'nightmare'. Many premium vehicles have this feature.

Is this a seat that's retained by the car belt while the child is held by a 4 or 5 point belt integrated into the seat?

Technique with ours was to pull the car belt through the fixings on the seat with one hand while using the other to cope with slack still being taken up by the inertia reel. Eventually got to point where belt was locked.
