Rear Seat belts in 2005 X3 ???

There are 3 straps in the rear of my newly purchased 2005 BMW X3. There are only 2 latches. Am I missing the one for the center? Or is that back seat only for 2 people????

No, it's for 3.


There should be two latches side-by-side (on the passenger side) - one upright and flush with the seat surface, the other folded over the depression made for it.

Previous owner must have screwed things up when removing and replacing the bench for some reason.

The bench pulls up quite easily from the front edge.

You will have to find the missing latch underneath the bench and guide it back through the hole.
Should be a tight squeeze as they are designed to not disappear down the hole in normal use like they do in some other vehicles.

Thank you.....

Thank you so much. I will get my husband to help me try and find it under the seat. I was ready to trade it in, because I have 3 grandkids, and they can't all ride in the back right now. I appreciate the help.
