I'm sure I remember reading that they're not serviceable...but I can't for the life of me find it now so I'm not sure.

Really? Having had the seatbelts out in both my current '91 V-Spec Roadster and my previous '95 1.8i S MX-5 I can confirm that there are no electrical connections to the seat belt reels. What would the fuse be for? :???:

This is a jap interoir fuse box cover that i have converted into english, you can see BELTS clearly labeled on the right ,so you should be able to work out which one against the Jap cover....

Nothing personal but I'm gonna need to see pics before I believe that there is an electric seat belt retraction system rather than a good old fashioned spring (which is what I know my car has).

They have some weird de-tensioner thing. No idea why. I guess Japs don't like to feel a tight seatbelt :roll:
