BEFORE YOU START: DISCONNECT THE BATTERY
It is extremely important to disconnect your battery. This will prevent the rare instance of the airbag deployment and any damage with SRS airbag components. Also, any electrical shock or shortage will not occur.
1. Locate the seat belt.
Find the seat belt that you will be removing and prepare the area clear of any obstruction.
2. Remove any screws or bolts.
The seat belt assembly will be covered by plastic trim. You will find small covers covering the screws or bolts. Locate them and unscrew the bolts.
3. Remove all trim.
Use a flat head screw driver to remove all trim along the seat belt assembly.
*Move your seat back/frontwards.
To get better access to your seat belt, move your seat belt appropriately.
4. Unbolt the seat belt assembly.
At this point all trim should be removed and the seat belt assembly visible. Locate the bolt the holding the seat belt assembly.
5. Disconnect the seat belt plug.
Carefully remove the plug using your flathead screwdriver. Some prefer to use a thin razor blade to undo the plug.

If you see any other screws or bolts holding down the assembly, remove them to get the seat belt assembly out.
