A quick tip for anyone looking for rear seat belts for a Dolomite or Triumph Saloon, don't buy them from any of the Triumph specialists, use a company called KCP Car and Commercial Ltd as they are a fraction of the price, KCP have an ebay shop under the user name "kcponline" and I got two brand new rear Securon seat belts for less than 54 quid which is less then half the price than some Triumph specialists are selling them for and significantly less than all the others I checked out. FYI the Securon part number for belts to suit 2000, 2500s, Dolomites, Toledos and Acclaims is part number 254.
Anyway, first part of fitting then is to remove the seat squab and back. The seat squab just pops out. The back is held by two pozidrive screws at the bottom of the seat back accessible once the squab has been removed.
Next you need to cut the rear parcel shelf above the seat belt captive bolts, the parcel shelf hardboard already has cuts outs ready in the right place, you just need to cut through the foam and leathercloth above. I removed the whole parcel shelf to do this but you can do this with the parcel shelf in place, just lift up the front to check where the holes are in the hardboard base.

Once the squab is back in place the seat belts are ready to use.
