How to remove B-pillar seat belt outlet (seatbelt surround)?

Do you see the metal clip? that has to slide up (and it fits very tight) while at the same time releasing the tab.

The old 996/997.1 ones had a single screw also but I don't see on these. If by chance their is a screw - just be careful not to drop it into body cavity (I wonder how I know that!).

Sorry, haven't really had the time to do this the last couple of days. But I was looking at it just then, trie to pry it upwards with those special plastic interior removal tools but it seemed to be very tight fitting and I didn't want to break anything.:help: No I couldn't see the metal clip either.

Here is the installation steps in case anyone needs it for future reference...

Credit to MAcarbon

1. Pop off the coat hook on the B pillar.

2. Pop off the part that you use to raise or lower the height of the mounting of the seat belt on the B pillar.

3. Remove the bolt holding the seat belt anchor to the B pillar.

4. Remove the screw (located under the coat hook)that holds the cover of the B pillar in place.

5. Lift the cover up and out.

6. Pop seat belt surround off and install new one.

7. Reverse steps to put everything back. Bolt holding the seat belt anchor in the B pillar should be torqued to 37 ft.lb.

Total time - under 15 minutes per side.

Thanks,

Lane
