Rear Seat Belt Removal

I need some advice. I am going to install a duster on my LJ. I will need to remove the rear seat belts (as an aside, my wife took the rear seat out a long time ago and put it in the attic). However, I believe you have to remove them a special way or if you decide to re-install them it becomes problematic. Does this sound right?

actually you do not have to completely remove them...I left mine in for the first couple years I ran a duster...but they are long gone now...and as far as taking them out a certain way...I just unbolted big deal.

I have never heard that before. I just removed all my seat belts so I could take off all my stock sport cage padding and cover. They went back on just fine.

My rear seat is out, seatbelts out. When the kids are home, I put them back in. Done it a dozen times, wrench off, wrench on..

I don't think there is anything special you need to do to remove them. I've had mine out several times and I just unbolted them and took them out.

I had all my seat belts out this past weekend for some good tub cleaning. Went back in without an issue. Not the first time I did this nor the first TJ I did it with.

Guys, thanks for the clarification. I guess I either misread or heard wrong. I thought that when you take them out, if not done by a certain procedure, the mechanism gets buggered up and doesnt want to retract correctly. oh well, they are coming out this weekend, along with adding a spiderwebshade and a duster.. summertime is a coming.
