- Need to know if the seat belt (female) latch assy can be pried open without destroying things? I'm talking about the plastic housing for the right side latch of the driver. I have an object stuck deep down inside and it prevents the seat belt from being used, as of today. It looks like the long plastic housing will come apart if pried sufficiently, but has anyone done this or know if it is practical? It is impossible to remove the object any other way. I have a tiny pry tool that I can get in there, but it's useless to grab hold of anything. Needle nose pliers are even more impossible.
Technically you can remove the plastic cover, but you do run a risk of breaking the cover. I had the cover come off one of the rear seat belt latches when something was dropped on it and if I remember correctly there are two little plastic latches on each side that join the covers together. Similar to taking apart a tv remote control. It was similar to this http://d3nevzfk7ii3be.cloudfront.net/igi/1YwCAGJqvCNOQRSb
. They do make little tools that are meant to pry cell phones and remotes apart. I bet that might work.
