Rear seat info/help? , Appears the 2 kinds in 84-86..

As I move front to rear in my obnoxious forensic assessment of my car, I noticed that my rear seats donít have the little red pull tab like others.. was gonna order some buuut...

Then I noticed the have working snap straps look more 78-83 that 86. The leather on the tiny straps just seemed older. The 86 parts manual shows the straps just as the SC parts manual. But doing a quick search online you see both kinds for Targas..

CDN vs US?

The carpet is orig in my car and my only question is the piece that the inner seats go into is weld ( looking at manuals ) and appears to be different on what seat you have. It can also be hidden behind the carpet.

Need clarification..

Any guesses? Everything else Iíve seen in my car is orig..

Here are some pics.






Pic I snagged from web.

Hi Hotshot- Petra's production date was 12 May 86 and she does have the red pull knobs. I do have a copy of the 1986 911 Dealer Brochure, which shows rear seats with the leather straps. Considering the brochures would have used early production '86 vehicles for photography, I suspect it's safe to assume the change took place in mid-1986?

Ah ha! Nice. So 84-85 would have the straps.

I was also looking at some pictures on the forum and thought my 85 Targa was missing the Red knobs too.

Our black '86 Cab has the red nobs, and the carpet is identical to your photo # 1.

based on the interior parts catalog the change occurred in 86 represented by the "G" in the serial numbers.

Item 19 in this diagram represents the lock knob. Then when you go to the associated listing it shows that it is applicable to the following models with 91 representing 911, 93 representing 930; G being 1986 model and XXXXX representing the last five digits of the starting serial number and finally >> indicating from that serial number on.

Coupe; 91GS1 21001>>
Targa; 91GS1 60903>>
Turbo (US) 93GS0 50437>>
Turbo (Canada) 93GS0 55070>>
Cab 1985 or possibly earlier don't know the exact start serial as i think this catalog starts at 1985

These are the images from the Coupe/Targa/Turbo pages.
