The retractor on the passenger side (right) rear seat belt on my 1992 Roadmaster Estate wagon broke and I cannot find a new one anywhere. I need one from a 1991-1994 wagon (sedans and 1995-1996 wagons are not compatible I hear), preferably in tan. Let me know if you've got one.

You can buy any colour belt with a good retractor and simply swap your belt onto the good retractor. It's easy.

I have been having not luck finding a belt of any color, but if I do is there anywhere I can find instructions on how to swap retractors?

Copied from SS forum, but missing pics (and I have done this personally, it works)

Unwined the belt and push the belt up and pull out the pin

Here is the Broken retractor taken apart

Unwined the doner retractor take it part like above BUT DO NOT LET REWINED back hold it and push in the your belt in and side in the pin

The regulators are easy to swap. You must remove the speaker cover, and it is bolted to the body. They are a PITA to remove. If you are going to replace the belt only, put a piece of coathanger wire through the slot in the reel before you push the belt out and remove the locking bar. The only place they are available is in the junkyard. Belt color is going to be an issue. There is someone who does repair the retractors, and can supply belts, but I am not sure who it is. I believe someone on the forum used them, and had good results.

If you get a regulator from the junkyard, and your belt is good, I would go that route. I will be over at my dad's house on Monday, and I will check for a passenger's side retractor for you.

My belt is good. I just need the retractor (is that the same as "regulator"?). Let me know if you find one at your dad's or if you remember the person who can repair them. Thanks!

The name of the company is: Safety Restore. There is a thread about fixing seatbelts in the interior section.

I contacted them weeks ago. There's nothing they can do for me they said.

I have been battling a back issue, and can not lean over. I will get to it soon.
