Hi all.Newbie here
Just wondering if you could help me please.I would like to change the driver's seatbelt on my 2003 C3,and i have found one from the breakers.My seatbelt mechanism works fine but the belt is frayed in places so is it a simple diy replacement that i can do on my own or it needs to be done at the garage?I just thought it is an easy bolt off bolt on job.Please help.

Hello ashbcbg

The seatbelt latch also contain the pre-tensioners, so you need to treat them like air-bags (disconnect the battery etc.) but you may not be changing these.

There are some plastics to remove to access the inertia reel and some bolts to get the parts off. Don't loose the washers.
