    Rear seatbelt removal

    Anybody know how to remove the nearside rear seatbelt on a 3 door??
    Had a quick look but it looks totally hidden away behind the trims.
    Is there an "easy" way to remove???

    Also, the reason I need to get to it is because the seatbelt has decided to stop retracting. I can get it to retract if I fiddle with it for some minutes, but I'm losing patience with it now.
    Are these things generally fixable, or is it a case of when they're gone they're gone!?

    Thanks Dave.


    But..............................
    I've got to remove the back seats and boot carpet and trims and basically the entire back of the car, just to change a seatbelt!

    its honestly not that bad to do
    it all comes off quite easily and can be done in about 20mins

    i had the same problem with my seat belt, a little white plastic clip fell out and it stopped retracting properly and the cost of a new seat belt is alittle annoying
    now : A3 2.0 TDI, ST-3 remap, coilovers, matte black rs6 alloys

    800 spent on my car in a week, is that excessive? B***ocks is it

    Cheers mate, I might give it a crack later then.

    Hopefully it can be fixed. Noticed the cost of a new seatbelt and you're right, it ain't cheap.
