    Tether Anchors in Silhouette/Venture

    I have a 99 Olds Silhouette (Van...Basically the same as a chevy venture). I do not have an owners manual, or can't find it. Does it have tether anchor points that I don't know about, or can they be installed? At the end of the year DD#1 will probably be moving to FF b/c she'll be hitting 35lbs, and I'd like to be able to tether her seat. (I think anyways, I weighed her yesterday and she was still only 31lbs...which she has been for some time. Height-wise, she'll be pushing the top of her Scenera by then though. Thanks!!!

    Unfortunately, Pre-2001 information must be obtained from the dealer, as part numbers change over time.

    Dealers are usually useless with this stuff ... try contacting the manufacturer direct My 2005 LATCH manual says:

    Most General Motors vehicles manufactured in or after 1989 are tether-compatible.
    GM will provide and install free of charge one Top Tether Hardware Package.

    Awesome, okay well today I am at work (we own a shop...thus the name!) and looked online at our repair guide, got the numbers and called our dealer in town back. The guy in the parts dept. is a good friend, he just didn't know where to look. The nice thing about the repair program is it gives me part numbers and labor charges...and the tsb (technical service bulletin) says they have to provide the anchors free of charge, and are supposed to do the install free to!

    It's something I can look up at work, or even at home I guess, so if someone has a pre-2001 vehicle and questions about tethers, I might be able to help with looking it up. Just send me a pm!
