Drivers seat belt for 146

Hi all,

A couple of days ago my seat belt failed to extend fully or retract and jammed in no man's land that meant I couldn't fasten or stow the damned thing...thus rendering the car unusable as it is of course an offence to drive without wearing a seat belt. Today I removed the plastic trim and unbolted the mechanism from it's housing.... turned it upside down and shimmied the spring and rollers...hey presto it worked again ...until the 3rd time and it jammed again causing me to repeat the earlier rigmarole...this time my attempts proved vain and after much prodding and slapping and pulling of belts etc the blummin thing exploded in my hand (lucky to get away with minor burn and slight fright)

Upshot is I need an entirely new seat belt system for my 146 (drivers side) and wondered if anyone knew of anywhere or anyone breaking a 146???

LOOOL, set the pre-tensioner off. I'd have bought you a new one to have watched that.

There was someone scrap-scheming as little of a 145 as possible here.
