On the recent subject of the seat belt replacement I have two cetns to add.
I also just recently received the replacement set(Pat must have mailed them
all out at the same time) also with the extra brackets.  I found that he old
brackets simply needed to be adjusted so that the new seat belt reel axle
was very close to horizontal.  They have worked without a problem since
then.  Although one of the bolts was difficult to install all others went
just fine.  The only problem that I have found is that the latch end of the
drivers side belt does not have a connection for the seat belt warning
system as the original.  I have not attemptead to open the new latch to see
if there is a connection for fear of damaging the new belts. I have to
question a safety recall that makes another safety system inoperable.  

I have asked Rover if they have any information on the switch but no
response so far.
