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.............................. :scared2:
    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! :faint:

    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

    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.
