Question about 1999 Honda Accord
My seat belt latches were chewed and destroyed by my dog. He chewed the plastic off and all that is left of the latch (where the seat belt plugs into) is metal and broken springs. Where do I find new or used ones?
Junk yard. Google "junk yard" and your location and you should get some hits. Or I like car-part.com. Once you get them, you should be able to access the bolt that holds them in place by moving the seat all the way forward (assuming that we are talking about front seats). There should be a plastic cover that "pops" off with a little influence. Remove bolt, install new/used part.

There is a replacement guarantee in place
wherein Honda states that they will repair or replace your stock Honda
seat belts for the "usable life" of the vehicle.
The "usable life" portion of the agreement establishes some requirements that have to be met and are listed here:
1. Vehicle has a current registration & insurance (Under Federal,
State, Local Laws)
2. Legally titled within the USA or Canada (Honda North America)
3. Never been totaled by insurance or Federal/State/Local standards
4. Never had an airbag deployment / isn't throwing a code for the
This warranty is separate from all other factory warranties for the car. So, you car does not have to be under it's 3/36,000 or other factory equivalent. It is warrantied directly through Honda and not a third party company. Any Honda dealership within North America is required to replace or repair the belts free of charge. There should be no charge to you for inspection or replacement costs.
I have read reports about some dealerships attempting to charge a fee for the "diagnostic" process to determine if the seat belt is indeed malfunctioning. However under this warranty Honda does not allow the dealership to do this. So, you just have to stick to your guns and the dealership will not end up charging you anything.
They don't cover seat belts which have been:
1. Cut, Shredded, Frayed by long term physical contact with sharp objects such as knives or belt buckles
2. Altered beyond factory specification
3. Altered from factory locations
4. Frayed by rubbing against interior trim pieces
5. Damaged by altered interior panels
6. Impeded upon by non-factory interior installations
They will cover the seat belt replacement even if you have taken your inside trim apart so long as you haven't modified the seat belt or the trim surrounding the seat belt.
There is no reason that this request for repair cannot be 100% successful. The warranty is very simple and clearly stated. The key...meet the requirements.
