Re & Re integrated seat belt

Postby Fuzzbuster [OP] » Aug 22 2018, 3:57am

Have a 2003 Sierra 2500HD. Driver's cloth seat is shot. Have acquired a used cloth seat but seat belt is cut. Needs to be replaced. Can't locate tensioner. Can anyone help?

Why not just swap your current seat belt into the new seat?

Just looked at my 05 GM service manuals.
The retractor is buried in the belt side of the seat back. There's a pivot bolt at the top and two bolts about 1/3 & 2/3 of the way down the tower from the top pivot bolt. It looks like the opposite end of the belt is retained on the side of the seat base.

Needless to say you have to remove the upholstery from the seat back or at least carefully move it out of the way to access them.

The seat base upholstery clips are more accessible with the front and rear tilt motors in the extended position... all the way up. It may give you more access to the base of the seat back upholstery as well.

I'd just swap the working belt from your old seat over to the new one. Since the cloth on the old one is knackered you can learn how to unclip it on that one rather than playing Russian roulette with the nice seat that you want to keep.

I'm installing TheSeatShop Durofoam with the "improved" side bolsters before the cloth gets too hammered by the broken down foam in my driver's seat.

Proper torque is important when re-assembling seat belt hardware. Don't just make em "tight enough".

How is the track on your old seat? I have some issues with the rear tilt motor on my LH 6 way track.

I still cant figure out why the cloth would be so hard to access...but not as familiar with this model truck. The cloth on mine was very easy to remove.

How is the driver's left side arm rest removed? The seat cover won't go past the point where the arm pivot goes though the seat cover: I'm thinking the arm has to be pulled out, pulled and rotated one direction or the other....

There is a spring clip you pull that allows it to come out. Here is a video:
