of course it possible to access this retractor , you just need to locate the small round circles in the lower part of trim and gently pry the covers off , screws will be evedent , you will need a 6 mm star (five sided) drive socket wrench to remove the retractor though
I had the same issue with the rear seat belt. what my solution was taking the plastic cover off the top side that pulls the seat belt back in and notice that on these cars, they actually fold the seat belt at the very end to prevent tearing. therefore the seat belt was folded inside the re-tractor and got stuck. what i did for a solution was twisted the seat belt unfolding it by grabbing the other end behind the re-tractor and now it works. Try not to fully extend it next time...... if that doesn't work go to a junk yard 12 bucks replace the whole seat belt.
This is the solution you desire:
1.If you look closely between the seats, there is a small loop strap made of material similar to the seat belts.
2.Pulling it releases the latch that holds the seat down. It is possible to close the seat down onto the strap, thus hiding it and leaving no apparent way to get the seat up.
You will need to grope around and find it. It may help to use a tool like some sort of hook. It is in the center of the rear edge of the seat, but it may have been folded off to either side.
Your 1991 model Accord has automatic front retracting shoulder belts and, more than likely, the power retractor motor has gone bad on the passenger side front. If the shoulder seat belt is not in the retracted position, up close against the seat, when the car is running, the seat belt light will stay lit on your dash. Have the seat belt motor inspected and replaced if necessary.
The sunroof is powered by the same circuit breaker that power's your power window, so if your windows work than the circuit breaker should be good. You needed test the switch to verify if works with; on the factory sunroof system the roof is controled by a sunroof module the module receives a signal from the switch then throws voltage to the sunroof motor. The motor and module are located between the sunroof assembly and windshield underneath the head liner. You would reconnected the switch and test to see if the sunroof motor is getting power when the switch is in use by testing the dark green wire when closing and a light green wire when opening. Test these wires at the sunroof motor with a ohm meter or test light. Also, check this procedure to repair...

You will need to check the track to see where it is jamed. There might be some parts that needs to be replaced...the fuse is probably bad by this point, but get it free before replacing the fuse if it blowed.
I need to replace the rear passenger-side seat belt buckle clasp but the clasp (under back seat) is connected to the seatbelt for middle backseat passenger.Can I replace just the passenger side without disturbing the middle belt?, cheers,Jen.
To fix that scenario, I have to get to the bolts anchoring the seat belt which can be found under the rear seat. Which a socket wrench, remove the bolt freeing the seatbelt to allow you room to release the lock to pull the belt out from the top of the back seat. You may now push the back seat into its upright position and then refasten the seatbelts with the bolt to it's former position under the back seat.
When I in later times need to lower the back seat, I will either loop the seatbelt around the head rest or tie two belts together allowing for slack in case the belt tightens again when trying to move the seat back to its original position.
