Hello, I hope I can offer you some assistance.
Which seat needs the buckle replacing?
Let me know and I'll reply as soon as I'm able to.
Second row seat behind the passenger seat. Iv exposed the belt buckle attachment. I tried with a small socket with a torx fitting but no joy. I was wondering do i need to add more force to the bolt or there another way?
the bolt is tightened to 35 Nm so it shouldn't be too tight, I use a 1/2 ratchet with a Torx attachment to undo it. Other than this it is straight forward enough to undo and isn't anything odd such as a left hand thread.
Let me know if I can advise further.
Thanks Sean it probably because I was using a 1/4 socket which probably isn't man enough
You'll struggle with a 1/4 drive and may end up hurting yourself if the bolt moved.
