It is a loop for the assembly line crane thing...when they assemble the car the put in the whole seat assembley into the car and bolt it on.Viscouse said:OK, I've been looking at this thing for the past 2 years. I have no idea what it is. Does anyone know what it's for? There's one on each seat track (for a vehicular total of 4). Nothing attaches to it.
LATCH is only on the rear seats.......I think.....JWLANKY said:I thought they were for tethering down child seats? Maybe not.
Sounds sensible. Protect the airbags, saving them money. They aren't always stupid..........LinearSLT said:Yes they are indeed the lift points for the seat on the production line. I've actually seen them in action. It's probably one of those changes Saab made to the assembly process that pi$$es GM off so much. To my eye, it seemed like the hoist they used would put a lot of pressure on the side of the seat otherwise. That would be bad for the side airbag, so perhaps this is the reason ?
Just a guess...
