    The driver's side seatbelt on my 97 SL2 is stuck fully retracted, like I
    braked too hard. Except, the seat belt won't extend. I pulled the interior
    plastic panels off to access the the ratchet mechanism, but the Torx screw
    that holds the coverplate on is bigger than anything in my toolbox. Any
    idea what sort of tool I need to pull off the lower seatbelt ratchet
    coverplate? (sorry, I don't know the technical terminology) Or any ideas on
    how to make the lock release on the seatbelt?

  2. Go to an auto parts store and get a set pf bigger Torx bits. If you want to
    work on your car they will come in handy in the future.
