NEED HELP WITH SEAT BELT

My wife and I got a dog from the APL 3 months ago. Damn thing was the best dog I knew of. Never a problem, no pissin in the house, no barking, etc. Then this past weekend the dog went crazy. He chewed the table cloth in the kitchen. We alsway take him for a ride and never a problem. This weekend stated to be a problem. He chewed up my wifes leather purse which was in the truck. He also torn up my drivers side seatbelt. Went to put the thing on and saw it was shredded.

The problem is this. I called the dealer and they want $100 for labor. I figure there is only 2 bolts that hold it on. One at the top and one at the bottom. What is invovled in getting the plastic off to get access to the belt housing?

Anyone ever replaced one before?

Thanks for the input.




p.s. The dog might soon become an outdoor arrangement. [img]images/graemlins/AR15firing.gif[/img]

Re: NEED HELP WITH SEAT BELT

sounds like your dog is rabid [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] you should be able to find a seat belt at the junk yard . most junk yards around here give them away because of the insurance liability involved in selling them ....Von Warner [img]images/graemlins/givemebeer.gif[/img]

Re: NEED HELP WITH SEAT BELT

I've got a 2000 Chevy Blazer LS 4 door 4x4. I talked to the local dealer and I guess they have tons of different belts. I need to have the VIN # to get the correct one. It is also $100 and labor is another $100. I say it needs to be a "do it youself" project.

I refuse to put another $200 into the "dog fund".

Re: NEED HELP WITH SEAT BELT

i dont work in the truck division, but is it one of those adjustable sholder strap ones?? most of the designs are just snap off, if you have to remove a larger panel, they have a different type of clip. use a panel removing tool to do this, cause if you just pull on the edge, you could bust a clip tower

Re: NEED HELP WITH SEAT BELT

There should be a number at the end of the belt inside the adjuster. That number plus your trim code should get you the right one. GM usually uses torx bolts to hold down the belts. Probably need a T-50 to remove the bolts.

Re: NEED HELP WITH SEAT BELT

Yeah, my seatbelt is held on my a T50 torx up near the shoulder. The clasp (and arm) on the floor is also held on by a T50. I havent had to remove the spool on the floor yet, but its probably just held in by two small bolts
