If you have the two parts of the belt system then they are considered to working. That said it's easier to remove them completely as that removes any ambiguity raising from testers opinions.

It's not a Jimny. It's my Jimny

I removed my rear seats in 2005 but my seat belts are sill in ... its 2018 and its NEVER failed an MOT on this.

As a side note, if your seat belt mount FAILS an MOT, just remove the seat and it will pass the MOT.

I've got both parts of the belts and the seats out and she passed her MOT last week .... with an advisory about the belts.
The advisory seems to be just a note to say that the seats and belts are removed and there's no suggestion that any remedial action is required for the next MOT.

It just a "cover my ass" statement for the MOT station. It covers them from possibly faulty removed parts being re-fited after the MO just to gain a pass. Fully understand this action, as such no fix is required for the next MOT, but chances are it will be an advisory again.

Seat belts but no seats is a pass. There is no requirement to remove any part of the seatbelt.
