Front retractable seat belts
How do you remove the plastic cover over the front retractable lap belt? I need to replace one of mine that is cracked. Anyone done this?

72 Mach 1 H-Code (Concourse driven restoration)
67 S-Code Factory GT with 4-Spd

68 Mercury Cyclone (Pro-Street project)
The cover is just pushed over the roll-up mechanism. You need a liitle patience to fumble it off, but it works. It also helps to put the whole assembly on a warm radiator for half an hour or put it into the sun to make the plastic more workable.
Depends on the style of retractable belts you have. 71-early 72 used the ones that had the soft plastic covers that just slip over the retractor housing. From mid 72-73 they went to hard plastic covers with the removable cover over the mounting bolt. To remove these there's I think one screw and 2 rivets that need to be drilled and removed, then the 2 halves should separate.
Yes, my '73 has rivets.
