Seatbelt replacement HELP!

Need some help guys. I am on the hunt for a replacement drivers side seat belt for my truck. The retractor and everything works perfect etc. The problem I have is the previous owners dog chewed the actual material of the belt. I have been looking for a long time and have come up with nothing.

Today found a truck that was totalled. The guy told me the retractors are locked up and he'd sell me the assembly for a decent price and I can try to swap the belt to my good working assembly. Is this something that can be done?

Also the truck is a an ext cab and mine is a crew. The front belts should be the same though correct?

Any help is appreciated.

I had to replace the rear center belt on my rig. Found a good deal for one on EBay. They had a lot of different parts on there for seat belts.

You cant swap belts between different retract assemblies. If the retract assemble is locked up that's because it was in a crash and is now worthless. Its called a pre-tensioner, and once it goes off the whole assembly is worthless. It normally happens in the event of an airbag deployment. Be careful buying used. Non-retracting belts are ok but other than that, I wouldn't ever buy a used seat belt.

Seat belts can be removed and replaced from mech to mech. challenge is finding someone who is willing to do the swap. with all the lawyers these days. probably isnt going to happen. Back in the day/s Ive done more than I can recall and would do the same if were mine.

If you break it down... and nothing other then the belt has been chewed thru all you need is the same webbing material and some one to sew it properly. very simple operation.

Best luck.
