    Help....needing seat belt receptacles

    And not having a lot of luck finding receptacles only. Just the whole kit. Not needing them to be original, just need to work with what's already there since the seat belts are fine..plus hoping to have them a little longer than original. Called one local place and they said they only have the one..and may have to modify. Haven't checked other places yet...and the online places so far have the entire belt assembly. Any other options?

    Finding a 80s vintage Spider 2000 is a long shot, but worth a try. Especially if you are not in the rust belt like I am. All the cars here are long gone.

    They are good. I just bought seatbelts from them for my 124 Coupe. They have a belt kit for your Spider. They didn't have anything for a Coupe, but I came up with a universal set that they customized for me. Seatbelts do deteriorate, so a new set wouldn't be a bad idea, too.

    Thanks everyone...the seatbelts themselves are in surprisingly good shape. It's just the plastic over the receptacle is bad, and on passenger side has finally just fallen apart...still works...but hard to get in there to release. Haven't tried the junk yards because I figured if I did find one with a Spider, what I'm looking for would probably be in just as bad shape. Plus the originals are pretty "short", so when we got to work on the interior...was going to try to find something a bit longer anyways. Seems simple enough to swap....just a bolt basically.....right? (I know...famous last words). I will say at last weekend's Cars and Coffee the folks with the Alfa Romeo Spyders were warm and welcoming saying things like "what's up cuz" and such...and offered words of encouragement when I was lamenting about being over budget on where I wanted to be at this point with "get use to it....it never ends" and others words of wisdom.

    Thanks....got a call in but the guy I had to talk to wasn't in so waiting on a call back. Still trying to figure out the temperature controls. I googled them and found something...but when I set the arms...don't think the settings are the same. Took her to work past couple of days since the temps were low 80's. The responses were positive...especially from the monster truck types. My favorite was from one of the supply house drivers with "look at that azz". I was worried at 1st what she was talking about....but it was the car. Picture is next to the truck belonging to a field supervisor. We have a running joke about who's over compensating.

    Here is how the heater controls on a Spider work. They are all the same from 66 through Spider 2000s.





    Sometimes the heater cable gets disconnected from the heater control valve. You can see the valve if you get down in the passenger footwell and look in back of the console near-ish to the firewall. Move lever "D" back and forth and you should see it operate the lever on the heater valve. These can sometimes fail or leak so the heater still gets hot no matter where the lever is.

    Thanks...had no idea there was a lever back there....need to go look. Also need to go through the "chilton's" book sometime. Just couldn't make it simple....could they? :P


    *Just went and looked....couldn't see a lever under the dash...but did find an old sock tucked up and in for some reason.
