    Hello, I have a 1995 1500 Silverado with a driver seat belt that doesn't retract.

    I have a feeling I can fix this myself, but I don't want to break any trim to do it. I cannot remove the retractor cover and have been searching the internet everywhere.

    Does anybody here know how to do this?

    I'll include pictures if needed, but don't have any at the moment.

    Thank you!

    I was going to put my 2 cents in and got sidetracked. I have a Burb, but I'm sure they are all the same for the era.

    Remove the plastic cap with the cross in it, it's threaded if I recall. Below that is a torx bolt, T47 maybe? Undo the bolt and remove the seatbelt. Work from the inside to remove the two plastic rivets, and the case folds over. Watch for springs and cogs and pinchy things. If it won't retract, you might find crud in there, but chances are that it's worn out, and you may have to hit the salvage yards for a replacement.

    Good luck,
