    How much clearance do you need for the black belts to fit & operate Martin? I have some NA6 SB's in black, but you will have to start the process all over............

    Only about 1/4" is needed.

    Yes, I will take those NA6 belts off your hands

    Why not buy new belts from Mazda? Not to kill a sale... it just seems wrong to not take the opportunity for fresh webbing.

    Sorry, but I'm a cheap b@st@rd and new belts seem to be around $200 each.




    (I know, what about safety and all that...)

    NA6 and NA8 belts are different, and the belt receivers are different too !! So make sure you get the correct year for your Miata!

    Can anyone explain how to remove the plastic trim panel covering the seatbelt tensioner on an NA6 Miata? I removed the two nipple-top type fasteners on which the top boot would attach, and I removed the door seal in which the trim panel tucks, but it still feels attached somehow. I don't know if it just has the pop-fasteners like the door cards, where you just pull to release them, or if they're actually bolted from beneath the wheel-well panel. I don't just want to pull on them and break them. Can anyone help?

    Bringing back from the dead. So, an NB seatbelt does not have the 12" extendo - but then what "does" it have? What does it do during a crash in comparison?

    Edit: To clarify - the first page has the info, but it just speaks of the NB1 having a reel that breaks before it locks. I imagine this is a give of a few inches and not 12" like an unmodified NA belt?
