Seat Belt Buckles

Audible seat belt buckles? Inaudible seat belt buckles? My truck has front audible buckles that don't fit correctly due to their or the seat placement. They need to be reversed but there isn't room. The red push button is in the inside, not the outside when buckled. What is the advantage/disadvantage to each?

There isn't enough room to reverse them, I tried every which way. I'll get pix up tomorrow.

Can you swap them side to side? Left to right? Literally unbolt them and switch them in the factory mounts, should be a retained 17mm. Shouldn't take more then five minutes.

Swapped them and as you can see the buckle is in the way of the seat moving and has to be installed on a weird angle. The drivers side is even worse.

I've honestly never seen one like that? I'll post a pic of the stock ones I was thinking of.

I think the audible would be the ones that have the warning buzzer or light on the dash if you don't have your seat belt buckled. So there is probably an electrical connector on the buckle.

But I've been wrong when guessing on defender stuff in the past.

I don't see any wiring on the ones I have but I'm guessing you may be right.

What year truck are they on? Those appear to be for Defenders 2007+

SEAT BELT BUCKLE ASSY RHF DEF 2007+, EVL501080PMA - Rovers North - Classic Land Rover Parts




When I upgraded mine last year believe I picked up some similar to these, I needed rear ones for the new Puma style seats (middle row) and upgraded the fronts also as they were sticking.

Land Rover Seat Belt- Defender 90" 2 Door L/H Reel and Buckle | eBay

Could be incorrect on this, there are several other types out there.
