Missing bolt or ?

I need some help with this one. The cantrel and C pillar are pulling apart. Looks like there may be a bolt missing. Previous owner removed seat belts when he put in jump seats.
Thanks in advance

Yup. Bolt is missing. It is a seat belt bolt, but at least you have the spacer.

I would order from RN as IIRC (and memory is failing on this) it is a fine thread metric. The spacer is in all the way and I think there is a metal collar as well. I would take a rachet strap and run it to the b-pillar and pull them together, actually no I would not, but that is the easiest way. I would stand in an awkward position over the spare and push the c-pillar forward and try to fidget to get the bolt in and probably hurt myself.

I have never checked this. So the rear part of the cantis are held in by the seat belt bolts? These bolts are not the same as the other cage bolts? Not even in pitch?

Registry
Mark, the purpose of that spacer is to allow the seat belt hanger to sit on the step in the spacer and swing freely while the bolt is tight up against the spacer. As shown it's fine - just put a bolt in and push the rear C-pillar forward until that gap is gone and the bolt should thread right in.

If you have the bolt on the other side, simply remove it and take it to a hardware store and match up the size and thread.
