I recently removed the C-pillar trims to re-cover them. A fine job I did too, even if I do say so myself! (Photos of the whole job will follow...) However when replacing the seatbelt guide the threads stripped and I cant torque the bolt up to the required 33ftlb, no-where near. Now the bolt screws into a captive nut, which is welded into the chassis/body, and its this nut which has stripped out. WHY was the bolt designed with a stronger thread that the captive nut, and has anyone got any experience/ideas of how to fix this problem. My rear off-side seatbelt is currently U.S. Al
