I picked up a pair of seat belts with the cable type tensioner today. The rubber boot I found in the passenger side, well it is attached to the plunger. I guess that pops off when the tensioner squib blows.
Installed the seat belt assemblies and the "B" pillar trim, with the freshly reattached leather skin (I used 3M trim adhesive). Made all the connections and fired the car up. It seemed like a long time, maybe 10-15 seconds, but the SRS light went out!!!!!
Once the light went out, it did not come back on nor was there any annoying buzzer. Now I can get back to work on putting the interior back together.
