In this video, we're going to be working with our 2006 Chrysler 300. We're going to show you how to remove and replace your vehicle's rear side seatbelts. We're doing the passenger side, however, this procedure is exactly the same on the driver's side.

Here are the items you'll need for this repair: 10-18mm sockets, ratchet, socket extensions, T50 Torx bit, Phillips head screwdriver, torque wrench, interior removal kit from 1AAuto.com

Remove the rear seat cushion. To do this, you'll grab right where you feel the bracket underneath and pop up firmly, and there's another one on the opposite side. Lift out and remove the lower seat cushion. Pull the tabs to lower the rear seats. Fold down the little flaps, and you'll find a 10mm bolt for the side seat cushion on each side. Remove that with a 10mm socket and ratchet. Once the bolt is removed, firmly grab the top of the seat cushion and pull out to release the clip. We'll repeat this process with the opposite side.

Remove the two Phillips head screws in the lower seat panel. Now you may need to fold this seat up in order to get to the lower screw. Pop the top of the panel out and then up, and repeat this process with the lower panel on the opposite side. Use a T50 Torx to remove the seatbelt bolt. Once the bolt is out, lower the seat back down and pop the seat pillar off. The last one in the back corner is the trickiest. You're going to actually want to reach back there and pop that manually so you don't break it, and pull your seatbelt through the panel. Repeat these steps on the opposite side. Using your T50 Torx spit and a ratchet, carefully loosen the seatbelt bolt. There's one here at the pivot and another one down here at the ratchet. Then lift up and pull out to remove the ratcheting mechanism.

Slide this tab back into the T-slot, and push down and line up your T50 Torx bolt. Tighten it down with your socket and ratchet. Reinstall the captured bolt in the pivot and tighten that down as well. Torque the bolts to 25 foot-pounds. Reinstall the seatbelt through the seat pillar, line up the seat pillar, and snap all of the tabs back into place. Be sure to pull the interior weather strip over the seat pillar before snapping it entirely into place. Reinstall the T50 Torx bolt at the bottom of your seatbelt, tighten it down, and then torque to 25 foot-pounds.

Now you'll have to fold the seat down and install the bottom of the seat pillar cover first, then snap the top in, lay the seat back up and install your two Phillips head screws. Reinstall the seat panel. Remember to snap the top back into place, and reinstall your 10 millimeter screw, and repeat this process on the opposite side.

Reinstall the back seat. Make sure that you pull all of your seatbelt buckles up to the appropriate slots in the seat. Slide the rear down into place. Line up the front. Push down to lock it in.
