Re: One Screw... - Saabnet.com Bulletin Board
If you look closely at the front dome light, you'll see a couple of spots where you can stick a small flat-bladed screwdriver. I think they're on the side closest to the windshield. When the plastic lens is popped off, the single black Torx screw will be very obvious. Take that out, and then pull down the upper console. I've taken mine apart several times and have never broken a clip. It seems to be fairly sturdy. I had to use small pliers to carefully wiggle out the fasten seatbelt bulbs. They're recessed so you can't get your fingers on them.
You're right that it just senses whether or not the seatbelt is buckled, and even then, it only checks the driver's belt. That sensor can fail, like it partially has on my 2000. The seatbelt light will never illuminate when the driver's seatbelt is unbuckled, but it will for a brief second when the seatbelt is partially latched. I'll find a better one at the junkyard some day. I didn't realize the check seatbelt light in my NG900 was burned out because like you, I always buckle it before starting the car. I was checking something out and happened to notice the lack of a red light when the dinging started.
