    Hi
    The forum have questions about how to remove the seat belt
    To do this, you needed a special key that only Tesla has
    I found a service manual that explained in detail how to do this, this key was shown there.
    I took a screenshot, translated it all into a STL, and printed the key on a 3d printer.
    Printing was done with PLA plastic with 100% fill.

    To remove, you need to gently (this is a plastic key, but should be steel) insert the key and while holding it insert the hexagon on the side and also push it

    Download STL - Seatbelt key.stl

    I just printed this, and after 20 minutes of fiddling with this tool and the hex key, I finally managed to get the driver’s seat belt off. However, it won’t budge at all on the passenger seat, and I can’t get it off anymore after reattaching it on the driver’s side either. Is there any specific way this should be done to make removal easier?
