    Those things are really easy to break seeing how when you swing your arm back to get out of the car its right there. I just crazy glue mine back together it lasts a few weeks until i hit it with my elbow again.

    You have to unbolt one end of the seat belt and rethread it. I think the giude is just screwed to the seat.

    just be gentle with the plactic covers and you should be fine, also be very sure to use the right size socket or torx bit as the seat belt bolt may be in there pretty good. And dont twist it, if you do you will have take it aprt again to get it out.

    I replaced mine with the convertible ones. They already have a slit in them so you can just slide the seat belt in without taking it off. I ordered them through GMPARTSDIRECT and they were like 7 bucks each, or something like that.

    i had to replace both of mine. Its really not that hard. I got the new ones from the dealership. If I remember correctly you have to unbolt the seatbelt from the bottom and then put the guide on, then bolt the seatbelt back on. The cover you just take off with a screwdriver. It should only take you only a few minutes to do.
