It just unbolts. You do need a special socket called a "Torx", the size is T45

Check this generic procedure:
1. Follow the harness side of your seatbelt (this is the side you pull across your shoulder and lap to connect to the anchor side) to the points where it connects to the car frame.
2. Using a flat head and Phillips screwdriver, unscrew and pry off any plastic housing that is covering the bolt connections. Select a socket that will fit the bolt and attach the wrench to the bolt.
3. Feel underneath the car for the other end of the seatbelt bolt. Fit a box wrench to the nut and hold it still while unscrewing the bolt with the socket wrench inside the car.
4. Unbolt the shoulder attachment of the harness with a socket wrench. Remove the harness side seatbelt from your Toyota Corolla.
5. Install the new harness side seatbelt by reversing the removal steps, however, make sure to use the new hardware provided with your replacement belt.
6. Feel down at the bottom of the anchor side of your old seatbelt. There will be one bolt and nut attaching it to the bottom of the car. Remove the bolt using a socket and box wrench.
7. Install the replacement anchor side. Before you tighten the bolt, connect the seatbelt and make sure that you have the anchor side facing the correct direction to receive the harness. When it is right, tighten the bolt.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

SOURCE: have p0130 and p0133 codes 98 toyota tacoma

I would check the O2 sensor, and if it checks bad, replace it, and clear the trouble codes. If the light comes back on, you may need to check further. .

the weak spring is making it tip. also you say the other shock is leaking fluid. you need to replace both shocks and springs, the seem to have been worn down, there is no fix other than using spring blocks to boost up the saging side, but i would recommend replacing it all.

Theres a red circle light on with a person sitting in the seat with seat belt on.light has stayed on for 2 weeks now does it have something to do with the air bags?


No, that is just an indicator that the driver or passenger isn't wearing a seatbelt. If it's on and you are wearing a seatbelt, it just means the light is malfunctioning. A mechanic can fix it for you.
