Help Removing Seat Belt Harness/head Rest Convertible E46?

I am trying to remove the head rest on my convertible in order to paint the much peeling and fading belt harness. Convertible owners should know what I'm speaking of. The plastic pieces that the front seat belts go thru and is attached to the headrest on convertible models. Mine is peeling badly, so I'm going to paint it the color of my interior or black. Please advise.

From what I know, I believe you need to remove the entire seat to properly do this. Then you need to partially disassemble the seat backrest. This will give you access to the fixed anchor point and seat beltlock/tensioner since they are mounted on the seat frame. If you do decide to do this, I recommend torquing the bolts to spec. Good luck!

E46C Seatbelt Guide, Headrest

On 5-23-13 you posted instructions about disassembly of E46 Convertible headrests and the seatbelt guide.
The instructions refer to "piece 1, 2 and 3..." but the pictures are long gone.
Can you please help me with this?
I am trying to replace seat belts through those guides and will have to disassemble them somehow.
