Seat Belt Retractor Replacement - Left Front

Caution: To avoid personal injury to the occupants of the vehicle, observe the following precautions:

More than one supplier's seat belts are used, therefore, install ONLY the seat belt components specified in the GM parts catalog.
To verify that the correct seat belt components were installed, insert the seat belt latch in the seat belt buckle. The latch must be fully seated and be retained in the buckle until purposely released.

Removal Procedure

Move the front seat to the full forward position.

Important: Do not remove the seat back cover from the head restraint retainers.
Remove the seat back cover and pad. Refer to Driver or Passenger Seat Back Cover and Pad Replacement.
Separate the seat foam from the cardboard to gain access to the retainer on the seat belt side.
Remove the seat belt side cardboard retainers.
Move the cardboard outwards to gain access to the lower seat belt retractor bolt.
