Disassemble the driver’s side except slowly and paying attention this time. Maybe set up a high speed camera to capture all the parts as they fly away from each other tumbling earthward.

2002 SC1
Default Re: Removed passenger seatbelt to remove rear trim....

from your diagram, I took #2 and #1 off. The bolt (torx head) that holds the holster thing in, came out and then out popped a washer or two and a spring. It seems that it will take a good bit of force to compress the spring to get the bolt to the threads... but before that I need to know in what order all of these piece have to go

The passenger seatbelt in your 01 resembles the drawing in the lower left of the pic that fetchitfido posted, correct? I don't see any springs in this drawing, and my memory of my 01 SC2 is somewhat hazy, and for the upper seatbelt assembly to frame attachment I don't remember springs there. Is it the lower seatbelt to frame attachment you are wondering about?

I don't remember anything like you are describing when I did my interior swap. Only thing even remotely close was some small part on the backside of the grab handle when I pulled the headliner. I am wondering if something broke and came apart, or if this was a piece added by previous owner for some reason.

I don't remember any springs, either.

I removed 1 & 2 a month or two ago as part of the headliner replacement. (actually, maybe it was 1 & 14 on the far right of the diagram, the note at the bottom says "99 to present").

The #2 ( #14?) part will definitely drop when the bolt comes out, but I only remember washers, no springs

2002 SC1
Default Re: Removed passenger seatbelt to remove rear trim....

Actually looking closer at the diagram, the part number #1 and #2 is for older S series models... There is no specific part number apparently for the bolt and top holster for my 3rd gen SC1; however, #6 on the bottom left of the diagram covers the entire assembly to maybe get a better idea.

But anyway, it's the same idea.. it is the bolt that holds the top part of the belt to the frame. There were a few washers, a spring, and lastly a metal cylinder piece that has a big end (which looks to hold the spring) and then a narrower end (that appears to stop the head of the bolt from going through)... The Metal cylinder itself appears to sit right inside the hole in the plastic seat belt piece. Also, one of the washers appeared to have sharp edges on it (sort of like a lock washer, but not sure).

I'll take a few pictures when I get home.

Default Re: Removed passenger seatbelt to remove rear trim....

The assembly is indeed part of #6 in the lower left of the illustration, but is not part of the detail of the illustration.

The first question is, what part caused the wear mark on the plastic? That part goes there.
2nd question is, what direction does the ferrule (the long brass metal part that holds the spring) face, does the small end go towards the frame or away from it?

My conjecture is:
The small steel washer goes on the ferrule first, then the spring obviously goes on the ferrule, the lock washer goes on the small end of the ferrule to act as a stop for the spring, then the two small brass washers go on either end to allow the assembly to rotate against the friction of the spring.

I think that for the most part, the sequence of how you have the washers and springs is correct, but it's a matter of where the big brass washer and the steel washer goes.
