Hello folks and happy spring!

I didn’t feel comfortable with my original safety belts on my
‘75 teener and ordered some new placements from and made
in Germany.

The belts we advertised as a match for my ‘75 2.0 but they are
not really a plug and play setup.

The oem has a chrome belt guide mounted behind the retractor,
which the new one doesn’t have. However, the new belt has a
pivoting plastic belt guide, pointed towards the front.

A few questions:

1) would you remove and transfer the oem chrome belt guide?

2) if not to 2), would you space/shim out to new retractor of the
thickness of the “missing” belt guide?

3) the new retractor has the pin missing, which the oem has to
fixates the belt guide and the oem retractor.

Is the pin necessary if not used with the oem belt guide?

Thanks for sharing your insight and experience!!
