Rear hook up? I don't understand what you mean.

The seatbelts bolt to the chassis of the car in three spots. The bolts are 7/16" or something like that; I guess that the DOT required an inch size bolt? There's one bolt in the tunnel, one bolt in the side of the longitudinal, and one bolt up in the side of the roll bar.

The retractor lives behind the back pad. To remove that, you have to pull the seats out, and remove the four screws that hold the bottom of the pad to the firewall. Then pull the bottom of the pad forward, and slide the whole thing down. That disengages the hooks that hold the top of the backpad onto the firewall.

From there, the retractor is held in with another bolt. I don't remember the size of the bolt, though.

BTW, be very very very very careful if you decide to take one of the plastic covers off the sides of the retractor. There is a coiled up flat metal spring under one of them, and it will launch itself straight at your face once the cover is removed. Since the edge of the metal is quite sharp, this can result in Very Bad Things happening to your face.
