Q: Seat belt harness

asked by on

My 2002 Honda Civic LX model has a "steel tie bar" bolted to the bottom floor next to door chassis. The seat belt loops through this steel rod. Is this standard equipment on this model car? do you know what this item is called?

My car has 57789 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

This is normal and it is called the seat belt anchor. It’s part of the system that keeps your seatbelt tight and secure.
