Question Can't find the rear seatbelt buckles

Call me stupid , but I can't seem to find the rear seatbelts in a 320i (2001) model. I was able to locate the middle one (laptype) belt as well as the buckle but couldn't find the buckles for the side ones. Any advice?

They get tucked in pretty well if you don't use them, but they shouldn't be all that hard to find. Have you pulled your rear seat out for anything? You might want to check to see if a previous owner/mechanic forgot to lift the buckles back up when reinstalling the seat.

Pull up at the front most part of the seat to remove the bottom cushion and have a look.

Thanks for the reply Chooie, I haven't pulled out the rear seats, I too suspect that its tucked somewhere quite deep, any idea how I can get to them? I turned the seat-backs down (from the boot) but didn't see them. It was then that I found this forum and posted. Thanks!
