Remove female seat belt recepticle

Due to Federal Safety regulations, the normal way for this belt to be secured to the car is by a big bolt which is fastened to the body of the car with a nut that cannot be removed. Often, the anchoring bolt is underneath the carpet, and may require quite a bit of the interior of the car on that side to be removed to gain access.
If you have a junk yard/salvage yard nearby, go there and find out what to do, because cars there should have some seats removed.
Be blessed.

The drivers seat belt will not latch, and the release button seems broke. What can I do?

You can go to the junk yard, or the dealer and get a replacement latch. The latch should be attached either to another piece of seat belt, or its a cord that is bolted to either the seat or the floor. Should be torx or star bit that removes it, its pretty simple, but worst case scenario you may have to remove the seat to access it. Seats are usually only 4 bolts and a wiring harness that you can unplug. I don't take chances with seat belts, so you may want to ask the dealer. Parts store may sell them, but I'm not sure.

How do I remove the driver side seat belt latch?

The seat belt bolts are some of the toughest bolts I've ever removed.
You can use some PB Blaster if it's rusted. What you are really going to need is a large breaker bar or a pipe to lengthen the handle of your socket wrench for increased leverage . Worst comes to worst a torch always works.

Need to replace door latch on 2001 cavalier drivers side, how do you remove the latch? The rods coming from the door handles hook through the arms coming off the latch

Hello, I think I know your problem and I can help. The rods are attached with little plastic fasteners that "swing away" to release the rods. I am sending you a picture of a typical fastener, if you look at it you will see a square channel with one side open. The open part is where you unsnap it. It's a tight squeeze but you can reach in and unsnap the connectors to free the latch, then just remove the bolts holding the latch to the door. When you go to put it all back together, I find it's easier to unbolt the outside door handle and push everything up and out the hole to give room to connect the fasteners. Once everything is connected just slip it all down and bolt the latch to the door and bolt the outside handle back. I hope this helps you with your problem, if not feel free to ask anything else that might help, good luck. fc85c18.jpg

How do you remove the rear seat of 2004 honda accord

Release the two latches at the front of the seat cushion (pull back on the latches to release the front of the cushion).

Remove the seat cushion bolt and remove the cushion (it’s roughly in the center. You have to insert a socket extension between the back and bottom seat cushions to take it out, after you find it by pressuring the bottom cushion and looking back in there).

Remove the bolts (each side) securing the seat side bolsters (they are easy to see once the bottom cushion is removed), then remove the side bolters (gently release the clips that hold them in).

Pull the seat forward, then remove the fasteners securing the seat hinge (seat pivot bracket) and remove the seat backs.

Hope this helps you.

Replace rear seat belt in 1993 Toyota Corolla

OK. On the front edge of the seat bottom cushion, pull up hard, both sides. This will dislodge the 2 clamps that holds the seat cushion to the floor. Pull the seat cushion out & set it aside. You will now see the female latches bolted to the area where the rear of the seat cushion meets the rear seat back bottom. Remove the bolts (14 mm I think).
