Hi. We have a 2008 Toyota Aurion. It's fitted with 3 anchor bolts across the back shelf. The shelf is designed so that the plastic overhangs the bolts a bit, making them impossible to remove. I have a new, 4-star-safety-rated booster seat which goes up to 26kg, and comes with its own anchor bolts, which are angled to 45 degrees, and obviously tested up to the weight of the seat plus 26kg child.
The anchors that come with the car are at a 90 degree angle and I have no idea what weight they have been safety tested to (all car manual says is don't use for harness on adult). ALSO, it is damned near impossible to unhook the clip from these anchors because of the angle.
So, the issues are: a) can't remove the bolts if we wanted to.
b) don't know if the anchors are safe enough for what we want to use them for c) we want to remove them so we can replace them with the bolts that are supplied (and therefore tested to Australian standards with) with the seat.
Does anyone have any information that may help?
