Need Seatbelt tensioner help

On the R53 and R56's I've had in the past, the front seat's tensioner (the one that fires when the car is in a significant enough wreck) was part of the buckle assembly. On the R59, there is no tensioner at the buckle that I can see, so what do I need to do to get rid of the airbag light in my car? It had a prior front-end collision that didn't set off any airbags, but it must have set of the seat belts. Just curious if there's a module that needs coding, maybe the seat belts themselves need to be sent off for rebuilding or is there another way?

Okay, I think I may have found my answer. Looks like I have to pull the seatbelt and send it off to be repaired. I'm going to use these guys from ebay, since $44 seems pretty cheap to ditch the airbag light. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Mini-Cooper...AAAOSwUZNavao~

The buckle in the R59 doesn't have a tensioner, and the seatbelt itself is a dual stage. For $69.99 these guys recharged the seatbelt and returned it within 24 hours. No more airbag dash lights makes me happy.

Is there a write-up or tutorial on removing and replacing the seatbelts?

Thanks,

Kevin
