i've seen this before on car rear seats but not a truck but i guess it could happen as well the middle belt latch gets twisted/mixed up with the passenger side belt latch , mfg's use a different size belt for the middle passenger belt and it won't latch up with the passenger side belt reciever but does fit inside
In trying to fit a booster seat into my 2004 Honda CR-V, I realized that the CRV has the belt buckle in the middle of the seat. This is a big problem for someone using a child seat in the middle seat as the buckle receptacle is completely covered by the booster seat. I thought about buying an extender but realized it wouldn't completely solve the problem. After much thought I came to the conclusion that the buckle receptacle could be moved to a new location without compromising any safety of the belt. I first pulled the buckle receptacle all the way out and then cut the fabric to enlarge the hole from which it protrudes from the seat. Then I pushed it through the hole and back into the seat with the head pointing towards the window and outer edge of the seat. After flipping the window seat out of the way I was able to peel the fabric away from the bottom edge of the middle seat enough to reach in and retrieve the belt receptacle. It was a little tight but I was able to buckle the belt and use the seat belt to pull the receptacle through this new "hole" and VOLIA the belt receptacle is now in a better position to the side of the middle seat. You can now used a booster or car seat or put a fully grown human in this seat and buckle with ease.
The middle row seat slides forward to the middle position (and several other positions as well.)

middle seat belt shouldn't have anything to do with it. The seat locks down for stowage in the rear cargo area. you can pull the release handle on the back of the seat to release it back into the up position.
If I recall correctly the belt actually is mounted behind the interior trim panel. It 1 piece on a short wheel base & 2 piece on a long. You must remove both seats (2nd & 3rd row) to hah room to remove the trim panel . BE CAREFUL the get very brittle and snap if you pull the wrong way
I need to replace the rear passenger-side seat belt buckle clasp but the clasp (under back seat) is connected to the seatbelt for middle backseat passenger.Can I replace just the passenger side without disturbing the middle belt?, cheers,Jen.
