Cool Seat Belt Removal

Hi out there!

I have passenger seat belt in my 650i that has a coin trapped in it..Any ideas on how
to get it out??Since it has been in, I can't connect the seat belt and of course I have to
wait until the no seatbelt chime times out!

Any suggestions will be appreciated!!

I would use tweezers or a stick with a piece of double-sided tape on the end.

As mentioned above, they also make a stick with a magnet on the end (looks like an old pull-out walkie-talkie antenna) but I believe American coins are non-magnetic. A place like Pep-Boys will have a flexible cable with 3 small claws on the end for grabbing small parts that have fallen into the engine bay. Looks like this:

I would try digging it out with a paperclip bent into a soft rounded L shape. Try to get under the coin and work it out. Double sided tape is a good idea...

Probably take patience and maybe use a couple of the methods listed in this thread together to work it out.
