Default 94 samurai backseat installation

Hi all,

New to the forum but just picked up a 94 Samurai in great shape. The PO had installed a split rear seat from an earlier samurai but never installed the back bracket. My question is where do I drill the holes for the bracket. I have read that the threaded inserts are just under the sheet metal but have no idea where to drill. Don't know if he mounted the front mounts in proper location so don't want to use the seat as a guide. Also he has retractable seat belts but I have no idea as to where they mount. If someone could be of assistance that would be great.

Well I see that a lot of people have viewed this but no one has replied. What I am wondering is if someone can measure from the wheel wells and the back door to the original bolt locations. That would give me a close number to work with. I can see the nuts through the wheel well but will have a difficult time transferring the measurements from underneath to inside the cab. So if someone has the time I would greatly appreciate it. My backseat bracket will be here on Monday.

mines an 88' so may be different but rather than relying on measurements just go underneath and take a small punch and put a mark/dimple up to the top tin or if you have room drill a tiny pilot hole from the bottom up.

The problem is there is only about 3" of room between the top of the gas tank to the nuts. So I would have a hard time squeezing my arm in there and an even harder time getting a punch up inside the nut. Even if I could do that I wouldn't be able to hit it with a hammer. What I was planning on was if someone could get me close with there measurements then I would drill a small hole from up top and look through the wheel well and see where it went. The measurements should all be the same from 88.5 up.

It is exactly 5-5/8" from the center of each bolt back to the seam where the floor deck meets the rear crossmember where it starts to turn upward.
Hope this helps.

You are awesome. That is exactly what I was looking for. The seatbelt retractors I think I can get the measurement on cause the nuts are closer to the wheel well. Again thank you for taking the time. Will help me to avoid drilling to many holes.

If you have the seatbelt locations that would help me in determining if my measurement is correct. Thanks again.
