I know from my FSM, that Canadian 88-92 Corollas had the one piece seat belt that have one buckle on the console side. I also know that my car has the mounts for these seat belts on the pillar. Two part question.

1. What would be a source for Canadian parts?

2. Would any other year Corolla work?

The belts attached to the door are driving me crazy(not a far trip). I sure would like to swap them out. Any thoughts.

No. On mine, the shoulder belt stays attached to the door. When you open the door it pulls out and you get in and the shoulder belt is there. You still have to attach the lap belt and the shoulder belt is always getting in the way putting something it the car.

If you can, post pics and I'll see if the coupe belts will fit. My 89 sr5 has the belts you're talking about and I've got my interior almost entirely stripped so I can take pictures of my setup if you need.

My Accord had power belts... I disliked 'em for a bit but then convinced myself they were a luxury feature.

Well, I did find several companies that make a universal 3 point seatbelt system. This would probably work but the Canadian belts seems like such a perfect fit.

Too many people have died because of wearing the shoulder belt and not the lap belt. Without the lap belt, and you hit something with the front of our car, your lower body will slide forward and your neck will catch on the shoulder belt breaking your neck.

Yeh, I would never wear the shoulder without the lapbelt. They are designed for a reason.
