    Anyone know about GMC tether anchor installs?

    I will need to put 2 carseats in my GMC Yukon XL when we have a 3rd child. I only have 1 tether anchor. I need to call GMC and see what they charge, just wondering if they do it for free like Ford does? I hope so!
    TIA!

    YW. Write that number down - you'll probably need it. But if your 2001 already has some anchors from the factory you won't be able to get any additional ones.

    If they set the Yukon up like the vans, the middle row seats tether to the rear seatbelt anchors

    Re: Anyone know about GMC tether anchor installs?

    The GMC Yukon has 2 tether anchors on the 2nd row (center & both outboards for bench seat). If your 3rd row is the 50/50 split bench the tether anchor is right of center. It can be used by either the center or passenger outboard position (not both at the same time). If it is the bench style 3rd row then it's in the center only.

    All TA's are squared metal brackets located at the base of the seat. For 2nd row bench seat. The TA's are located on the far driver side & directly on each side of the seat split.

    In my Tahoe the TA's on the 2nd row are down in the little cut out in the floor at the back base of the seat.

    But, Your vehicle has at least 3 if not 4 depending on your seat in the 2nd row.

    Opps I should say your 2nd row has 3 TA's if it is a bench seat. If it is caption chairs each chair will have TA's.

    If you would like a picture of the TA's on the 2nd row let me know and I can take a picture of my 2nd row TA locations. My Tahoe is 2nd row caption chairs.

    Re: Anyone know about GMC tether anchor installs?

    I have the bench seat in both the 2nd and 3rd rows. I have 2 tether anchors for use in the 2nd row, FF carseats. There is 1 near the base of the drivers seat, for RF carseat in the 2nd row, the other is near the base of the passenger seat for FF. So if I had a RF carseat in the 3rd row, I would have 2 options to anchor it. There is one tether anchor for a FF carseat in the 3rd row, and the anchor is to the left, toward the drivers side, of the center. I know where all the current anchors are.
    My issue is needing another one to be able to install 2 FF carseats in the 3rd row. When we have another baby, we will be putting the baby in the 2nd row, middle seat, and that is currently where my 3yo FF in a MA is. I will be wanting to move him to the 3rd row, passenger side, and there is not a place to tether his seat. Currently my 5yo is in the 3rd row, drivers side in his Regent, and is using the only tether anchor.
    I haven't called GMC yet, but I will.
