Here are photos of the ADR-compliant mounting bar I eventually installed for the rear lap-sash seat belts. The bar comes as a ready made kit available from 2CV parts supplier ‘Mr Citroen’ (Rolf Breyer). The bar is fixed on the rear mudguards as shown. Not shown is the matching curved bracket fitted externally under the mudguard. It’s a nice, simple solution.
The belts bolt onto the mounts nearest the windows. The two other brackets are mandatory child seat mounting points with internal reinforcement, and yes, they’re in use!12 Mar 2015 at 11:22 pm in reply to: Frames for mounting rear lap/sash (retractable) seat belts #1225
Thanks for the photos Tim. Looks great. Since posting on here I’ve heard about an ADR-compliant kit made in Australia for local 2CV owners. I’ve ordered one and it should be here soon. Have seen one installed and it’s a clean and simple solution. Essentially 2 curved plates sit on top of the inside mudguards like saddles. They are bolted in place (6 bolts each side) using anchor plates mounted under the wheel arch. Attached to these saddle plates is a horizontal bar that runs just behind top of the back seat. The bar has 2 child seat anchor points and provision to bolt on standard Repco lap/sash retractor belts. Will post photos when it’s installed.9 Feb 2015 at 11:15 am in reply to: Frames for mounting rear lap/sash (retractable) seat belts #1183
Thanks for the photos John. It’s a really nice, simple mod. In SA (and some other southern states) we can’t use that one… to be ADR compliant we need a purpose built mounting frame that’s engineer-certified and also incorporates child seat anchor points. Because of rear-end crash safety concerns, my preference is a design that doesn’t extend or mount behind the rear axle like some I’ve heard about. Hopefully there’s something like that out there and we’ll get to see some photos. 🙂15 Dec 2014 at 1:21 pm in reply to: Wanted: Rubber covers/boots for windscreen wiper spindles #1126
Thanks Ayjay, will check it out. On close inspection of the perished ones I have, I reckon they might be cut down rubber boots for steel chair legs!14 Dec 2014 at 10:56 pm in reply to: Wanted: Rubber covers/boots for windscreen wiper spindles #1124
Thanks John, can’t see them listed there so perhaps mine are after market additions.7 Feb 2014 at 3:28 am in reply to: Electronic rust prevention for a 2CV: good or gimmick? #926

Hi Peter, just found your message. Yes, I’m interested. Could you please send me some details (price, where the rust is etc). Thanks, Tom
