GM stores tell me that GM no longer stocks them and all the after market vendors have is an off beat center button release in the wrong color. Need the passenger side Female buckle belt with the release button on the front side of the buckle in the OEM light gray color only.

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
Candy, I'm not sure why you want to disable the pass seat belt chime, maybe its going off even with no one in the seat. BUT, the only way to stop it would be to plug the seat belt into the buckle. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Candy
The first step here and on any car with an air bag light is is to have the computer scanned to get codes out. The computer will store a code when it detects a problem with the system, the code will help to locate what part of the air bag system has failed. for example there could be a code that reads b1234 pass/side buckle circuit fault, this code would tell us the problem is in the passenger side seat belt buckle, then with some testing the problem would be found. start by having the codes read, record and write back with codes , also including year,make ,model. good day
It is telling you that either your seat belt is not on or your passengers is not on. There is a sensor inside the seat belt buckle that tells the car you are wearing it. If the passenger seat senses the weight of a person (or big dog) and they don't have the buckle on then the light will come on. If the seat belts are both buckled in then you must have a bad sensor on the buckle.
The rear seatbelt of the forester was a bit of a puzzle for me as well when we first got ours. The buckle is really in two parts. The first part anchors the strap, and the second part secures the occupant.
Check if your belt is fully retracted, look in the inertia reel housing at the roof in the boot of the vehicle. Remove it passing the end through the 'loop' in the backrest Make sure that you have the two buckle parts I referred to earlier. There should be an odd looking buckle fixed at the end of the belt, and the more familiar buckle that slides up and down the belt. The end buckle goes into the receptacle vertically below the loop between the centre and window passenger and achors the belt in place. This buckle should not be normally released once used regularly. Once the centre passenger is in place, use the sliding buckle as you would for any other seatbelt and fasten on the receptacle on the other side to secure.
Use same procedure for fixing a car seat or booster, etc.
sensor may be stuck inside your seatbelt. spray a lube inside it and put it together and take it apart 5 or 6 times just to get it to loosen. do this to the passenger side as well. if this doesnt work then some cars have a sensor built into the seat that tells the car you have a passenger that isnt buckled. its possible that this sensor is stuck. should be located under seat but can be checked by simply buckling the passenger seat belt and seeing if the light goes out.
I'm having the same problem. I unbolted the nut at the bottom of the seat and it allowed it to work again ... for the time being. I'm attempting to remove the 'assembly' and perhaps find a broken part, but at the present time, I can't tell how to get it out of the seat-back. The dealer says parts are not available for it, so I'm trying to locate a used one in a junk yard or buy one from an after-market supplier. email@example.com
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.
