Does anyone know or remember the bit size for the seat belt anchor bolt? It looks like a triple square 12 point, but I need the size to buy a bit.

Thanks to anyone who can remember.

Should be a 17mm socket for the anchor bolt. Edit- may be a Torx T-50 bit. My 981 with buckets has a 17mm anchor on the seat, but my 991 has a T-50 on the pillar side seat belt anchor. Hope that helps.

It's actually an internal flats bolt, not a hex, requiring a bit. I just need the size.

Sorry for any confusion. I looked closer at my 991 anchor and as you say it's a 12 pt internal. All of my bits are 6pt.
Yep, mine too... :)

It's definitely a triple square. I will get you the actual size later today when I get home if no one responds by then. I removed my seat belts and had to buy a triple square set to do so.

Ok. I found it on the instructions for a roll cage for a 991. M10 or #10 triple square.



For posterity.


EDIT: It turned out to NOT be the 10mm Triple Square. Still searching.

Thank you for introducing me to a triple square socket. I had never heard of them and learned something new today.

I just bought a set at Advance Autoparts, it's an M10 Star Bit SKU # AC835.

Can somebody please give me some directions on removing the seatbelts from the car? I want to change the color and surprisingly I can't find any DIY...

I didn’t totally remove mine but the PSE write up I did should help you get to them. I would think it’s a pretty straight forward job once in there. If you find out what the seat belt anchor bolt size, post back here if you don’t mind.

Thanks, I'll read it. I'm mostly concerned about trim removal. Once I see bolts, I can deal with bolts, but Porsche trim... It's often non-trivial, and the tabs break easily :(

It has been my experience that you simply have to 'look' at some Porsche trim and it breaks... almost like it knew you were going to touch it! :hilarious:

I was too, but it's honestly built pretty rugged since it has to be removed periodically to reach the engine and air filters. All parts have nice insulators and robust clips. It feels pretty wrong sometimes the way it comes off (I shouldn't be pulling this like this) :) but it was totally fine. The biggest thing is know which way the clips come OUT of the slots so you aren't pulling sideways and break them. Look up Voyager6 on here for a great PDF of pulling out all the interior trim to get to the engine topside. Then it's just a few more to get to the seat belts. By the time you get that far in, you will be confident in the process.

Great, thanks! I guess i'm getting new seat belts then!

I'm embarrassed to say that I used a metric allen wrench that stripped the bolt pretty bad, but ultimately got the job done. I've since picked up the right set of sockets.

Cool, let us know how it goes and post some pics. I've considered this but was not able to source OE seat belts. Even one s from Suncoast are not, I don't believe.
